CURRENT STATUS AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
With the release of version 1.0.8 lessfs has become pretty stable and is used by many people over the globe. It is therefore becoming more important not to change the lessfs-1.0x code beyond patching the occasional bug. For this reason all new development will now be done on lessfs2. A CVS repository is available on sourceforge for those who would like to monitor development.
LESSFS2 DEVELOPMENT GOALS
- Better compression / deduplication statistics.
- Snapshots with (hopefully) low performance impact.
- Per directory adjustable compression / deduplication enabling.
- Asynchronous replication.
- An improved cache layer.
