1 2004-07-29 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
2
3 * Add fuse_invalidate() to library API
4
5 2004-07-26 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
6
7 * Check permissions in setattr if 'default_permissions' flag is
8 set. Bug spotted by Damjan Lango
9
10 2004-07-24 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
11
12 * 'large_read' mount option removed for 2.6 kernels, since the
13 default (dynamic read size) is better
14
15 * Extend kernel API with file handles. A file handle is returned
16 by open, and passed to read, write, flush, fsync and release.
17 This is currently only used for debug output in the library.
18
19 * Security changes:
20
21 * Change the current directory to the mountpoint before checking
22 the permissions and mount filesystem on "."
23
24 * By default don't modprobe the fuse module for non-root. The old
25 behavior can be restored with the '--enable-auto-modprobe' flag of
26 ./configure
27
28 * By default don't allow shared writable mappings for non-root.
29 The old behavior can be restored with the 'user_mmap=1' module
30 parameter
31
32 2004-07-23 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
33
34 * Clean up mount option passing to fusermount and to fuse_new()
35 BEWARE: this changes the userspace API slightly, and the command
36 line usage of programs using fuse_main()
37
38 2004-07-20 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
39
40 * Optimize reading under 2.6 kernels by issuing multiple page
41 asynchronous read requests
42
43 2004-07-18 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
44
45 * Only use redirty_page_for_writepage() for kernels >= 2.6.6
46
47 2004-07-16 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
48
49 * Separate directory entry and inode attribute validity timer
50
51 * New write semaphore to stop page writeback during truncate
52
53 * Fsync now waits for all writes to complete before sending the
54 request
55
56 * Optimization: if a page is completely written by
57 fuse_commit_write(), clear the dirty flag and set the uptodate
58 flag for that page
59
60 * Some memory cleanup at exit
61
62 2004-07-13 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
63
64 * Add FUSE_HARD_REMOVE flag, and '-i' option to fuse main, which
65 disable the "hide if open" behavior of unlink/rename.
66
67 * If temporary buffer allocation fails in raw read, fall back to a
68 smaller buffer
69
70 2004-07-12 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
71
72 * Fix bug in do_open() in libfuse: open count was incremented
73 after the reply is sent so it could race with unlink/forget and
74 cause an abort.
75
76 2004-07-08 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
77
78 * When performing create or remove operation, refresh the parent's
79 attributes on next revalidate, as i_nlink (and maybe size/time)
80 could be inacurate.
81
82 * Use redirty_page_for_writepage() in fuse_writepage() for skipped
83 pages (2.6 only)
84
85 * Set set_page_dirty address space operation (2.6 only)
86
87 2004-07-06 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
88
89 * Minor fix in read: print debug info even if read size is zero
90
91 2004-07-04 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
92
93 * Fix race between truncate and writepage (fsx-linux now runs
94 without error)
95
96 2004-07-02 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
97
98 * Fix kernel hang on mkfifo under 2.4 kernels (spotted and patch
99 by Mattias Wadman)
100
101 * Added option for direct read/write (-r)
102
103 * Fix revalidate time setting for newly created inodes
104
105 * Remove uid==0 check for '-x' option in fusermount (kernel checks
106 this)
107
108 * fuse_main() only installs handlers for signals (out of INT, HUP,
109 TERM, PIPE), for which no handler has yet been installed
110
111 * Add module option 'user_allow_other' which if set to non-zero
112 will allow non root user to specify the 'allow_other' mount option
113 ('-x' option of fusermount)
114
115 * Fix deadlock between page writeback completion and truncate
116 (bug found by Valient Gough with the fsx-linux utility)
117
118 2004-07-01 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
119
120 * Change passing fuse include dir to 2.6 kernel make system more
121 robust (fixes compile problems seen on SuSE 9.1 with updated 2.6
122 kernel)
123
124 2004-06-30 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
125
126 * Acquire inode->i_sem before open and release methods to prevent
127 concurrent rename or unlink operations.
128
129 * Make __fuse_read_cmd() read only one command. This allows
130 multiplexing the fuse file descriptor with other event sources
131 using select() or poll() (patch by Jeff Harris)
132
133 * Export 'exited' flag with __fuse_exited() (patch by Jeff Harris)
134
135 2004-06-27 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
136
137 * Fix file offset wrap around at 4G when doing large reads
138
139 2004-06-24 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
140
141 * Fix memory leak in open (Valient Gough)
142
143 2004-06-24 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
144
145 * Add "close after delete" support to libfuse (patch by Valient
146 Gough)
147
148 * Cancel all worker threads before exit in multithreaded mode
149
150 2004-06-23 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
151
152 * Fix locking bugs
153
154 * Don't send reply to RELEASE
155
156 * Work with newer libtool (1.5a)
157
158 * Check for st_atim member of struct stat
159
160 2004-06-22 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
161
162 * No request allocation needed on inode and file release
163
164 2004-06-21 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
165
166 * Fix possible inode leak in userspace in case of unfinished
167 lookup/mknod/mkdir/symlink/link operation.
168
169 2004-06-20 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
170
171 * Fix some races and cleanups in fuse_read_super()
172
173 2004-06-19 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
174
175 * Requests are allocated at open time
176
177 2004-06-03 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
178
179 * Build shared library as well as static (using libtool)
180
181 * Change FUSE_MINOR_VERSION from 1 to 0. I know it's illegal but
182 there has not been a release with the previous minor number, and I
183 hope nobody is using it for anything.
184
185 * Change fuse_main(), so that default behavior is to go into
186 background if mount is successful. '-f' and '-d' options disable
187 backgrounding. This fixes the "Why does my FUSE daemon hang?"
188 newbie complaint.
189
190 * Cache ENOSYS (function not implemented) errors on *xattr, flush
191 and fsync
192
193 * Don't call getdir method from open() only from first readdir().
194 Open is sometimes just used to store the current directory
195 (e.g. find)
196
197 2004-05-18 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
198
199 * Added flush() call
200
201 2004-05-04 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>

203 * Extended attributes support for 2.4 (patch by Cody Pisto)
204
205 2004-04-20 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
206
207 * Fixed parser with modversions (Mattias Wadman)
208
209 2004-04-19 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
210
211 * Added mount option parser to 2.4 build
212
213 2004-04-13 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
214
215 * Replaced binary mount data with text options
216
217 * Show FUSE specific mount options in /proc/mounts
218
219 * Check in fuse.h whether _FILE_OFFSET_BITS is set to 64
220
221 2004-04-09 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
222
223 * Check some limits so userspace won't get too big requests
224
225 2004-04-05 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
226
227 * Kill compile warning
228
229 * Upgraded user-mount patch for 2.6.5
230
231 2004-04-02 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
232
233 * Add detection of user-mode-linux to configure
234
235 2004-03-31 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
236
237 * fixed zero size case for getxattr and listxattr
238
239 2004-03-30 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
240
241 * new fusermount flag '-z': lazy unmount, default is not lazy
242
243 * Extended attributes operations added (getxattr, setxattr,
244 listxattr, removexattr)
245
246 2004-03-25 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
247
248 * If filesystem doesn't define a statfs operation, then an
249 all-zero default statfs is returned instead of ENOSYS
250
251 2004-03-24 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
252
253 * Add FS_BINARY_MOUNTDATA filesystem flag for kernels > 2.6.4
254
255 2004-03-09 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
256

272 by fuse_main()
273
274 2004-02-20 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
275
276 * removed old way of mounting (fusermount mountpoint program)
277
278 * more kernel interface changes:
279
280 * added nanosecond precision to file times
281
282 * removed interface version from mount data
283
284 * added /proc/fs/fuse/version which contains MAJOR.MINOR
285
286 2004-02-19 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
287
288 * statfs library API changed to match other methods. Since this
289 is not backward compatible FUSE_MAJOR_VERSION is changed to 2
290
291 * kernel interface changes follow:
292
293 * statfs changed to 64 bits, added 'bavail' field
294
295 * add generation number to lookup result
296

321 2004-02-10 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
322
323 * Added check for i_size_read/write functions to configure.in

327
328 * Fixed writing >= 2G files
329

337
338 2004-02-04 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>

347
348 * Added -q option for fusermount
349
350 * fuse_unmount() now uses -q option of fusermount, so no error is
351 printed if the cause of the program exit is that the filesystem
352 has already been unmounted
353
354 * Fix i_nlink correctness after rmdir/unlink
355
356 2004-01-26 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>

371
372 * Write all pending data before a RELEASE operation
373
374 * Suppress 'Bad file descriptor' warning on exit
375
376 * Replaced fusermount option '-d xxx' with '-n xxx' so it doesn't
377 get confused with '-d' of fuse_main() (sorry about this change)
378
379 * New fusermount option '-l' which enables big reads. Big reads
380 are now disabled by default.
381
382 * fuse_main() can accept fusermount arguments after a '--'
383
384 2004-01-19 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>

387
388 2004-01-14 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
389

391 much more nicely in low-memory situations
392
393 * Fix 32-bit dev handling in getattr and mknod for 2.6 kernels.
394 (Note: the mknod method does not yet use 32bit device number)
395
396 2004-01-13 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
397
398 * Code cleanups
399

416 * Added major+minor version to library API, and minor version to
417 kernel API
418
419 2003-12-13 David McNab <david@rebirthing.co.nz>
420
421 * Implemented fsync support in examples/example.py
422

424 interface
425
426 2003-12-12 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
427
428 * Make it compile on 2.4.19.
429
430 * Add fsync operation (write file failed on xemacs & vi)
431
432 2003-12-12 David McNab <david@rebirthing.co.nz>
433
434 * Added distutils support to the python module, as per standard
435 python development practice
436
437 2003-12-11 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
438
439 * Add file locking for mount/unmount (based on patch by Valient
440 Gough)
441
442 2003-12-11 David McNab <david@rebirthing.co.nz>
443
444 * Python filesystem - was broken with python2.3, now fixed:
445 - changed PyTuple_* calls to PySequence_*, because os.lstat
446 is no longer returning a pure tuple
447 - changed PyInt_Check() calls to also call PyLong_Check,
448 to cover for cases (eg os.lstat) where longs are returned
449 - Added support for file 'release' handling, which IMO is
450 essential since this signals to a FS that writes to a file
451 are complete (and therefore the file can now be disposed of
452 meaningfully at the python filesystem's discretion)
453 - Added '__init__' handler to base Fuse class, which allows
454 your Python class to know the mountpoint and mount args,
455 as attributes myfs.mountpoint, myfs.optlist, myfs.optdict
456
457 * General:
458 - added 'mount.fuse' script (in util/ dir), which is meant to be
459 symlinked from /sbin, and which allows FUSE filesystems to
460 be mounted with the 'mount' command, and listed in fstab;
461 also, mount arguments get passed to your filesystem
462
463
464 2003-11-04 Miklos Szeredi <miklos@szeredi.hu>
465
