Ted Ts'o has submitted the EXT4 file-system feature updates for the Linux 4.14 kernel merge window.

The EXT4 changes this time around aren't too exciting but do include some scalability improvements when allocating inodes. There are also some random bug fixes and code clean-ups throughout the driver. But overall it's a quiet cycle with just around 200 lines of code changed.
