Matthew Dillon has posted a description of what remains to be accomplished before the 1.4 release, and just when that will happen, and he also has a detailed plan of what he’s going to do in 1.5. (Which, when stable, will be DragonFly 1.6.)
That second post contains several special things to note:
- 1.5 will be significantly unstable (at least compared to the previous development versions), so stick with 1.4 for a while if you don’t want trouble.
- The introduction of a new acronym that I daresay we will hear more and more often: cache coherency management system (CCMS).
- ZFS! (See Flash demo)
