In the meantime the mailing list was busy with multiple revisions of the sync/unmount code rewrite, and the patch series to make the inode64 mount option remountable and the default. On the user space side xfsprogs saw new support for the preadv, pwritev and sync_file_range system calls in xfs_io as well as minor fixes to libxcmd and mkfs.xfs, xfsdump grew support for dumping and restoring 32-bit project ids and and saw an update to the German translation. Xfstests saw a large number of fixes, and a single new test case.
