EXT4 Filesystem



 

 


The EXT4 filesystem has been in development for some time. It has finally appeared in the 2.6.28 kernel and first appeared in Fedora 11 as an option; EXT3 was still the default. As of Fedora 13, the EXT4 filesystem is the default when performing an installation.

Here is a link to a good discussion of the EXT4 filesystem. When I have a chance to explore EXT4 I will write my own description.
