This plan is *awesome!* On 11/2/2014 4:22 AM, Adrien Destugues wrote: Following the R1 release, the BeOS R5 compatibility can continue to exist in the R2 branch, either in-tree or as an external package. The R1 branch continues to get fixes so people using Haiku in production (we're thinking of TuneTracker here) can rely on a rock stable and supported version to base their products on. This way, people can ...

Hi, I come from Linux kernel background so my perspective of file-system implementation comes from the stack there. Unlike Linux; where a lot of common code has been put under VFS and all the lower filesystems implement either there own functionality or fallback on a generic VFS functionality for a particular filesystem operation; Haiku's filesystem stack looks a lot different. ...
