Announcing Journaled File System (JFS) release 0.1.6

From: Steve Best (
Date: Mon Feb 26 2001 - 18:28:26 EST

The latest drop of JFS was made available today.

The file system has fixes included.
The log manager no longer uses the page cache for log pages, this
eliminates dead-locks that were occurring in the log manager. The file system has
general work done to remove SMP dead-lock problems. fsck now supports default
values passed by fstab correctly. For more details about the problems
fixed, please see the README.
