This version of Lessfs adds support for Googles snappy compression.
Although QuickLZ and LZO are very fast, snappy is truly amazing.
Lessfs with snappy:
time cp /tmp/Some_software_DVD.iso /fuse/
Lessfs with QuickLZ 1.5.0:
time cp /tmp/some_software_DVD.iso /fuse/
ls -alh /tmp/some_software_DVD.iso
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3.3G Sep 18 02:07 /tmp/some_software_DVD.iso
Lessfs-1.5.7 comes with an important bug fix.
A bug introduced in lessfs-1.5.6 can cause deadlocks. When you use lessfs-1.5.6 then you are advised to upgrade.
