    Its Official...!! GA release on 14th Jan 2010

    Hi All,

    Happy New Year !

    First of all, a big thanks to you all for the tremendous response to the beta of ZFS port on Linux. It has been a continuous and arduous effort, not only from our team, but also from you all to rigorously test the beta and make the ZFS port on Linux code fit for use on production servers. Finally, after a three month effort on the testing, making changes and fixing bugs, we now come closer to the GA release.

    I am glad to announce that KQ is releasing the GA code for ZFS port on Linux on January 14th. It is the confirmed date and everyone here would be glad to know that majority of the bugs reported have been fixed. The code base is on zpool 28, which means, you have access to dedup feature which wasn't available in the beta earlier !

    Also, we are hosting a webinar on January 14th with an interactive conversation with our CEO answering your questions. You can find the details of the webinar on www.kqstor.com

    Once again, thank you all very much for the support and patience. We have finally made it!

    For any questions, feel free to contact me at [email protected]

    Cheers,
    Darshin

    Is native raid-z supported? Compression?

    But this is looking good already! The performance is much better compared to zfs-fuse.
    Yup.. think you are quite right...
    i've try upgrading to pools to v28.. same permission issue...
    create a new pool with zfs-linux and zfs send form my backup pool (created with zfs-fuse).. no dice... same permission issue upon completion...
    so now i am rsyncing form my backup... looks good so far...

    OK. tested the 2.6.35.10. The build fails on 2.6.36 and 2.6.37. This is going to be a recurring issue.

    Anyway, I am happy to report that native zfs on Linux 2.6.35.10 boots fine as a root filesystem. Haven't seen anything odd so far.

    @kanu: Everyone will get the same code. Its open source . The customers will get paid support, but the code is going to be the same for everyone. Hope that answers your question.

    @wingfeather: Thanks
