EXT4 Updates Go Into The Linux 3.6 Kernel
Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Kernel on 28 July 2012 at 06:46 AM EDT. 6 Comments
Two days after the Btrfs was updated with two big features for the Linux 3.6 kernel, the EXT4 file-system has now been updated for this next Linux kernel release.

Ted Ts'o mailed in the EXT4 feature pull for the Linux 3.6 kernel on Friday night followed by Linus pulling the tree in the early hours of Saturday.

The EXT4 work for the Linux 3.6 kernel isn't particularly exciting with just "the usual collection of bug fixes and optimizations." There is at least a speed-up for parallel, non-allocating DIO writes, but aside from that the fixes and other optimizations aren't anything really noteworthy.
