Subject: XFS status update for September 2012
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 30th October 2012 21:46:46 UTC (over 3 years ago)
September saw the release of Linux 3.6 which included a slightly smaller
than usual XFS update:

 51 files changed, 2607 insertions(+), 2455 deletions(-)

The bulk of the changes in Linux 3.6 is made up by native support for
discontinuous buffers, with various minor bug fixes and cleanups making up
the rest.  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.
