[$] Bcachefs gets closer

Post Syndicated from corbet original https://lwn.net/Articles/793282/rss

When it comes to new filesystems for Linux, patience is certainly a
virtue. Btrfs took years to mature and, according to some, still isn’t
ready yet. Tux3 has kept users waiting
since at least 2008; as of 2018 its developer still said
that it was progressing. By these measures, bcachefs is a relative youngster, having
been first announced a mere four years
ago. Development of this next-generation filesystem continues, and
bcachefs developer Kent Overstreet recently proclaimed
his desire to “get this sucker merged“, but there are some
obstacles to overcome still.
