    This makes me happy, thank you. Not that there’s anything wrong with ffs, but still

      seems to be in early stages but an interesting development nevertheless.

      1. 1

        Not very early, really, no.

        HAMMER appeared in DragonFly 2.0 in 2008: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAMMER_(file_system)

        HAMMER2 appeared in DragonFly 3.4 in 2014. It became bootable in DragonFly 5 in 2017, and the default FS in DragonFly 5.2 in 2018. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAMMER2

        So it’s some 15 years old now. It’s a year older than Btrfs and the same age as ext4.

        V2 is 5 years old and has been the default FS in the OS for the last 7 releases.

        TBH that does not sound like “early stages” to me. YMMV.

        BTW, the reason I’ve been researching this is that I just reviewed DragonFly 6.4: https://www.theregister.com/2023/01/06/dragonfly_bsd_6_4/

          Aha, OK, sorry, I missed the context here. This isn’t on the native OS but on NetBSD. My apologies; I misunderstood.
