FREE SOFTWARE --
The Flash-Friendly File-System (F2FS) will see another round of improvements with the now in-development Linux 3.19 kernel.

The F2FS file-system this time around features several bug-fixes and other changes. The noteworthy work for this kernel cycle is less than previous cycles but includes better memory and I/O control when under memory pressure, support for the dirsync mount option, and a fastboot mount option to yield reduced boot times.

The complete list of changes for the F2FS flash file-system in the Linux 3.19 kernel can be found via this pull request by Jaegeuk Kim.
