Filesystem in Userspace is a simple interface for userspace programs to export a virtual filesystem to the Linux kernel. It also aims to provide a secure method for non privileged users to create and mount their own filesystem implementations.

Release Notes: This release fixes two bugs related to the recently added symbolic link checking at unmount.
Release Notes: Highlights of the 2.8 release are more scalable directory locking, atomic open and truncate support, big write requests, better NFS exporting, new ioctl and poll requests, character devices in userspace, umask processing and cache invalidation notifications. This minor release fixes a race in unmounting a FUSE filesystem.
Release Notes: The kernel module in the fuse package is updated to compile with kernels up to 2.6.26. Note, however, that this kernel module is obsolete and its use is not recommended.
Release Notes: A bug in the FUSE kernel module that could cause a hang under Linux 2.6.24 has been fixed. This bug only affects the FUSE kernel module built from this package; the module in the Linux tree is OK.
Release Notes: This release fixes several problems, including a deadlock which occurred when ntfs-3g was terminated with a signal, failure to umount if /etc/mtab was a symlink, and linking problems with uClibc. The included kernel module has been updated to work with the 2.6.24 kernel.
