ZFS On Linux, a native port of the ZFS file-system to the Linux kernel via out-of-tree modules, was updated last week.

ZFS On Linux 0.6.4.2 brings fixes for a variety of issues, improved metadata shrinker performance on pre-3.1 kernels, Linux 3.12 improvements, and support for the brand new Linux 4.1 kernel.

More details on the changes for this minor update to ZOL can be found via the ZFSOnLinux GitHub site. I'm working to get new ZFS Linux file-system benchmarks out with the Linux 4.1 kernel in the days ahead.
