      Release Notes: This release has a lot of improvements, both to the filesystem itself (bigger blocks and sparse files) and to the tools Mksquashfs and Unsquashfs, which now support wildcard pattern matching in exclude/extract files. There are other improvements and bugfixes.

              Release Notes: This release is a major improvement, with the most significant change being support for filesystems and files larger than 4GB. Other filesystem improvements include support for hardlinks, proper nlink information, and the return of ".." and "." entries by readdir(). There is also a new Unsquashfs utility that can decompress filesystems without mounting.

                  Release Notes: This release introduces indexed directories, which considerably speed up directory lookup for directories which are greater than 8K in size. All directories are now also sorted alphabetically, which further speeds up directory lookup. Many smaller improvements have also been made to this release.

                    Release Notes: This release adds some new mksquashfs options, adds initrd support for 2.6.x kernels, and fixes a couple of bugs, most importantly bugs which prevented it working on amd64 systems.

                      Release Notes: A lot of changes to the Squashfs filesystem have been made under the hood to improve compression. This release adds the concept of fragment blocks and increases the block size to 64K. This achieves a 5 - 20% compression savings, and allows it to achieve better compression than Cloop while retaining the I/O efficiency of a compressed filesystem. The maximum number of UIDs and GIDs has been increased to 256. This allows Squashfs to better support live CDs.
