:Besides the finalization of vkernel, what else can we expect into 2.0? There are many long-awaited (not only by me) features and additions:
I am seriously considering our options with regards to ZFS or a
ZFS-like filesystem. We clearly need something to replace UFS,
but I am a bit worried that porting ZFS would be as much work
as simply designing a new filesystem from scratch.
One big advantage of a from-scratch design is that I would be
able to address the requirements of a clustered operating system
in addition the requirements of multi-terrabyte storage media.
is parallel file system in this scope, or it is the requirement you
have for cluster OS? what would be the advantage of designing a new
one compared to the current and existing one, considering the
advantage of the dfly kernel for SSI os to other kernel? put in
another way, is a new fs that will take advantage of the kernel
advantage superior to others, from what we can predict now.
even too much questions, hope they are all relevant.
With vertical recording, hard drives are set to exceed 1TB a platter
either this year or next year.
:- updated installer: fixed web based installation etc.
:- updated PF
:- getting the network stack (and others) out of the BGL
:- AMD64 port.
I am hoping other developers take up the ball on these items.
:Note that this is not meant to be demanding at all, I am just interested, because there is no clear roadmap. I just would like to see the developers' plans.
:And don't forget: I am here to test. ;-)
