Linux Versin 0.17 of the Linux filesystem btrfs has been released. The main news on this release is that it has been included in the Linus' tree. The changes include support of transparent compression, seed devices, improved block sharing while moving extents, improved block allocation and many bug fixes and performance improvements. Also, the disk format is not expected to change unless a critical bug is found.

Is BTRFS similar in features to ZFS? ZFS looks very cool and I like it's built-in compression, built-in error checking and copy-on-write features. I hope BTRFS has similar features.
