What's new

So what's new about zfs-fuse?
Unfortunately not much :p

Since my last post I've been basically enjoying what was left of my summer vacations (sorry :p). School started this week, and I've managed to schedule 2 class-free days per week, which is good for this project ;)

In the mean time, I've posted some patches to zfs-code, started to work on the FUSE part of the project (finally!), and migrated the code repository from Subversion to Mercurial (you can access it here).

Mercurial will greatly simplify my code management. It's an awesome CMS, and I've always wanted to learn how to use it, so I thought this would be a great time. Mercurial still has a few limitations -- for one, it doesn't handle symlinks, so I had to create a few rules in SCons to automatically create them but it's nonetheless a great improvement over Subversion, even for a single developer.

Anyway, next week I'll be having surgery (it's sleep apnea related, nothing serious), and I'll need to be home for about 1 week recovering. I'm seriously hoping to take advantage of that time to finally get zfs-fuse to mount filesystems and do some basic operations, so stay tuned :)
