WHAT IS INTERMEZZO?
InterMezzo is a high availability file system which replicates
directory trees among systems. It provides disconnected operation,
journal recovery and kernel level write back caching. It can use the
rsync algorithm for synchronization. It uses protocols somewhat
similar to Coda's.
This release includes a kernel rpm (2.4.9-ac5). The 2.4 -ac series
includes intermezzo and this kernel includes a minor extra intermezzo
patch to pure -ac.
WHAT'S NEW IN THIS RELEASE?
- it works with ordered data, provided you use the latest ext3
- replicates ACL's and other extended attributes (requires kernel with
EA, not packaged) (Shirish Phatak)
- better handling of InterMezzo specific metadata (Phil Schwan and me)
- data on demand
- better handling of NFS servers
- DAFS style network packets
- better handling of (false) conflicts for laptop users
