As we work through our last few blockers, we feel that Tux3 is approaching a state of fitness for merging with the mainline kernel. The code base remains light and tight, performance remains excellent and development focus is now moving on from basic functionality to advanced features such as snapshotting, data compression and directory scaling to billions of files.
The Tux3 BoFs will be of interest to developers interested in joining in or just seeing what is going on, and users who would like to judge for themselves whether this new filesystem may become a part of their future.
Tux3 introduces a number of techniques that advance the state of the art of file system design. Some of these new techniques, such as improved directory scaling, may be applicable to other filesystem projects such as Ext4. With its tight code base, superior performance and efficient use of small volumes, Tux3 is expected to be of particular interest for mobile and embedded applications.
