It was a little over two years ago that I gave serious thought to making user-space file systems a reality on Mac OS X. The result of that work, MacFUSE, was introduced at the Macworld conference in January 2007. Since then, MacFUSE has come a long way. It’s been used in projects big and small and has made numerous existing (on other platforms) and new file systems possible on Mac OS X.
MacFUSE 2.0 is a major update to MacFUSE. We’ll be discussing what’s new in MacFUSE 2.0 in a talk at Google’s Mountain View headquarters today. For those who can’t be at the talk, there are two versions of the “what’s new” description.
The Apple-style version is easy to state: “improvements and bug-fixes.”
Alternatively, you can read the CHANGELOG in its entirety at the project’s web site.
