EXT4 Updates Are Pretty Boring For Linux 4.3

Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Storage on 3 September 2015 at 10:14 AM EDT. 7 Comments
The EXT4 file-system updates have been sent in for the Linux 4.3 kernel.

There isn't much to the EXT4 updates for Linux 4.3 besides clean-ups and fixes. Ted Ts'o wrote in the pull request, "Pretty much all bug fixes and clean ups for 4.3, after a lot of features and other churn going into 4.2."

On a related note, Jens Axboe sent in the core block I/O and block driver updates for Linux 4.3. Those too aren't too exciting but mostly routine work. Yesterday was also the already covered F2FS file-system update.

Meanwhile, the debate over removing the EXT3 driver for Linux 4.3 is still ongoing.

There's daily Git benchmarks of different systems with the XFS/EXT4/Btrfs file-systems over on LinuxBenchmarking.com.
