August saw further release candidates of Linux 3.1, which had been
completely uneventful with just a single small regression fix being
In the meantime developments for the Linux 3.2 kernel went on with the merge
of a large series that completely refactors the XFS-internal xfs_bmapi
interfaces for simpler interfaces and less stack usage, as well as various
smaller cleanups and fixes.
September also was a very busy month for userspace development. In xfsprogs
we saw various error handling fixes to libxcmd, libxfs, mkfs.xfs, xfs_quota
and xfs_repair, xfsdump saw a few smaller changes finishing up the large
work done in August. Xfstests saw 4 new test cases contributed from
various developers, and the usual handful of bug fixes.
