Reiser4, btrfs, ext3 and ext4 Linux file systems news

Filed under
Linux

Several new developments around the Reiser4, btrfs, ext2, ext3 and ext4 file systems, which are mostly used under Linux, have been published in the last few days.

It appears that Namesys, the company behind the development of Reiserfs and Reiser4 is no longer in operation. However, he and several other developers would continue to develop the Reiser4 file system. The file system's source code is now available for download as a patch for Linux versions 2.6.22 and 2.6.23.

Based on ext3, the ext4 file system is actively being developed.

The steps and code below will break apart and compare the source code of btrfs and reiser4. It clearly shows that they are 81.56% identical. I consider this undeniable proof of a cover up.

Netrunner 14.1 – Main Edition (Frontier)

The “14.1” indicates an updated and polished release of Netrunner 14 LTS on the same underlying base. Since 14.1 is using the same base “trusty” like Netrunner 14, there is no need for users of 14 to migrate: Simply updating from the shared backports ppa of the Frontier release cycle should give the same result, while keeping customizations in place.
