Reiser4 Updated With Transaction Models, Linux 3.14

The out-of-tree Reiser4 file-system has been updated.

The latest Reiser4 file-system release is now available and it has two advantages over the earlier code:

- Reiser4 now has support for different transaction models. Reiser4 can now change between transaction models with regard to a journalling mode, a write-anywhere / copy-on-write model, and a hybrid transaction model.

- The file-system now builds against the Linux 3.14 kernel code-base.

There's still no near-term plans to try to mainline Reiser4 within the Linux kernel so until then you need to download the kernel patch via SourceForge.
