ext3 patches against kernels 2.4.5, 2.4.6-pre5 and 2.4.5-ac17 are
available at http://www.uow.edu.au/~andrewm/linux/ext3/

Almost all testing thus far has been against 2.4.5. Known
problems in 0.0.8 are:

- A theoretical deadlock with quotas in -ac. This is proving
  impossible to demonstrate, and will be fixed in 0.0.9.

- A fairly straightforward deadlock with quotas in 2.4.5[-pre].
  This will probably be fixed in 0.0.9 as a side-effect of the
  version 2 quota fix.

We wouldn't encourage people to put all their data on ext3,
destroy their backups and then play russian roulette with
power cords; however this software is in pretty good shape.

Please test, and send any problem reports to ext3-users@redhat.com
