|| ||[ANNOUNCE] Filesystem in Userspace - 2.2|
|| ||Thu, 03 Feb 2005 12:29:26 +0100|
FUSE version 2.2 is out there:
This can be used standalone or with recent -mm kernels (with the
exception of -rc2-mm2).
Most notable changes since 2.1:
- Added file handle parameter to open/read/write/release. This
should make life easier for filesystems wanting to implement
- Added compatibility to the 2.1 and to some extent to the 1.X API
- Re-added ability to interrupt operations. This time more
carefully than in 1.X.
- Removed shared-writable mmap support, which could deadlock the
linux memory subsystem. This should not affect most people, but
if some application breaks for you, I'd like to hear about it.
- Made the readpages() operation synchronous, again for deadlock
considerations. This can degrade performance, especially for high
latency filesystems, since previously parallel read-ahead is now
In the long run I hope to solve both problems, but neither is trivial.
Ideas are welcome, as well as bugreports of course.
