KDE Elisa s libVLC, RIP Adobe Shockwave [Stalo se] - 13. Duben 2019 - 23:00
[3 minuty čtení] Reiser4 běží na Linuxu 5.0, Wine 4.6 s podporou Vulkan/WineD3D, Nepál zakázal PUBG, Blu-ray/DVD stále padá, 4k HDR Disney+, Blender 2.80 v létě, do budoucna lehčí Fedora, GNU Emacs 26.2, systemd 242. Zatímco Hans Reiser stále „lepí papírové pytlíky“ (teoreticky by mohl být podmínečně propuštěn v roce 2020), souborový systém Reiser4 stále přežívá. Nadále platí, že mimo jádro a že se do jádra asi nikdy nedostane, nicméně Edward Shishkin opět zdrojové kódy upravil tak, aby bylo možné Reiser4 používat na jádru Linux 5.0. Žádná jiná změna v souborovém systému neproběhla.

Reiser4 Brought To The Linux 5.0 Kernel

Phoronix - 13. Duben 2019 - 12:41
For those still using the out-of-tree Reiser4 file-system, it may be about time to consider alternatives like Btrfs, XFS, ZFS On Linux, F2FS, or even the likes of Stratis and Bcachefs.

Is that worthwhile for "Disco Dingo" users to gain better AMD Linux gaming performance?..
