Actually mini_fo has been around longer, it just didn't implement all features until the last release ;-)
The main difference between unionfs and mini_fo is features and complexity. Unionfs allows to merge two and more branches with various options for each branch, while mini_fo focuses on merging only two, the base branch that will never be modified and the storage branch that contains the "diff".
This "lack" of features makes mini_fo a lot smaller, what is important as we use it in embedded systems.
