Lessfs-1.1.0 has a number of advantages over Lessfs-1.0.x.
To name some of the new features:
- The cache layer has been improved. The result is much better overall performance. Especially when writing to lessfs with a small block size.
- Lessfs now uses the mhash library and supports a great number of hashes with hash lengths up to 512 bit.
- Added support for a number of compression algorithm’s, including gzip, bzip and deflate.
- Lessfs now provides detailed compression statistics in /.lessfs/lessfs_stats
Since threading is much improved a high number of MAX_THREADS is advised on systems with multiple CPU cores. Since the code has changed a lot I have decided to release this as alpha1. I do expect the code to be fairly stable though. Does anyone know where to buy asbestos underwear?
