MinorFS combines a small set of cooperating userspace filesystems for Linux that provide private storage to pseudo persistent processes. This allows programs that are run by a user to keep some data safe from all potential malware that runs with all this users' privileges. It further implements simple password capabilities as a way to explicitly share access with other processes or users.

Release Notes: The focus of this release is to provide better cooperation with and simpler usage on AppArmor-based Linux distributions. This release adds generic AppArmor profiles for minorfs aware-tools, AppArmor profiles, and hard links for a least authority integrity confined version of bash. It fixes some problems with the installation script. This release has been tested to install and run on Ubuntu 8.10 and openSUSE 11.1.
Release Notes: The command line parameter in the etc/minorfs/*.xml files was interpreted with its value inverted. This is now fixed, and an example config file has been added for the e-language in order to promote the usage of MinorFs with the persistence features of this ocap programming language.
Release Notes: The 0.3.2 version was tested only on SUSE 10.3. This release includes fixes for problems running MinorFs on a few other distributions. It has been confirmed to run on SUSE 10.3, SUSE 11.0, and Debian etch.
Release Notes: Two bugs in the install script were fixed. If you are running 0.3.0, the folowing two actions will fix the problem: cp 2rulethemall /usr/local/bin; chmod 755 /mnt/minorfs
Release Notes: The internal design and low level storage have been updated. The design has been updated to allow for user level administration.
