Software News   Software News : IceFileSystem 2.1 released for MorphOS
   posted by Returner on 24-Nov-2010 18:45:14 (1888 reads)
IceFileSystem 2.1 released.

This release brings mainly bugfixes and improvements. Get it while it's HOT!

2.1 (2010-November-24)

Filesystem could spend alot of CPU in some situations, fixed.

There was a bug where overwriting a file using MODE_NEWFILE while the filename is different in case, would make the file unaccessible.

Setfilesize bug fixed.

Fixed a few problems when partition gets full.

Dynamic cache system improved. Streaming data from disk filled up cache completely and did not release any memory until streaming was stopped. A timeout is now used to release any cacheline that is not used for a specified number of seconds. Also various smaller improvements regarding (de)allocation.

Removed IceFileSystem_dbg. IceFileSystem nows contains all the debug already which can be activated by using FS Config. Debug flags undocumented for now though :) Ask if you need it.

Fixed freezing issue. Used a high precision timer unit which, in turn seems to cause problems when called repeatedly over longer periods of time. Now uses regular UNIT_VBLANK.

Especially the speed..

And, a OS4 version? versions for other systems=more key solds.

Perhaps it's about time to start doing some speed tests.
Anyone can do that though.
It wont be much difference compared to SFS, atleast not
initially. IceFS performance should stay good far longer
than on equvivalent SFS partitions though. Then again
different usage patterns can give different results..
But atleast IceFS provides a) pre-allocation b) pooled meta allocations,
both helps to keep fragmentation low. But even on a very large and
fragmented volume, finding suitable space for a file is still
quick thanks to TLSF algorithm.

Good question. I think it is quite safe to say there will be no OS4 version.
I do not use OS4 and a filesystem is one of those things where you need
both full access to the OS/Hardware and full interest in supporting
that platform. I lack both.

This is the current Amiga problem two PPC machies and one X86 and everyone with theirs developers, and resources lost when the job only is do for one machine or OS, the good way will be programs for the four machines or the half, OS4, MorhpOS, 68k and AROS.
Is would produce more potential clients and key solds.
