Re: Plans for 1.8+ (2.0?)
: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.
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. ;-)
