BSD and Darwin derivatives Apparently, Matt Dillion has decided to roll his own filesystem for DragonFly. "Here is my initial outline of the filesystem design. It is open for discussion. Please feel to ask questions for anything you do not understand. I do not intend to start coding anything for at least two weeks. There are currently two rough spots in the design. First, how to handle segment overflows in a multi-master environment. Such overflows can occur when the individual masters or slaves have different historical data retention policies. Second, where to store the regeneratable indexes."

DragonflyBSD keeps going on its focus about pure server/cluter environment improovements, nice to see their new upgrades, while they will be [even partially] ported to other BSDs, especially for FreeBSD which shares quite large part of source code.
