The HAMMER2 file-system is going on four years in development by the DragonFlyBSD crew, namely by its founder Matthew Dillon. It's still maturing and taking longer than anticipated, but this is yet another open-source file-system.

Landing today in DragonFlyBSD Git were another round of HAMMER2 improvements focused on on stabilization and optimization work. There is support now for more control bits, invalidation tracking work, cleaning up code, bulk-free code changes, and more.

Those interested in the HAMMER2 file-system for DragonFly can find more details on today's activity via this commit.
