2023-10-21: Btrfs-progs v6.5.3[edit | edit source]
btrfs-progs version 6.5.3 have been released.
raid-stripe-tree as an experimental feature.
The raid-stripe-tree adds another address translation layer between the logical and the physical addresses in btrfs and is designed to close two gaps. The first is the ominous RAID-write-hole we suffer from with RAID5/6 and the second one is the inability of doing RAID with zoned block devices.
- add short aliases for -O specification, block-group-tree (bgt), free-space-tree (fst), raid-stripe-tree (rst)
- don't try to resize the image (namely when backed by file) when --rootdir contains sparse file larger than the image
- also copy xattr/permissions/ugid/timestamps of the top --rootdir directory
- add new option --device-uuid to let user specify exact uuid of the device item (only for single device filesystems)
- on zoned devices, use correct super block offsets when repairing
check inline extent refs order
- subvolume create: add new option --parent to create missing path components of the given path (like mkdir -p)
- rescue clear-ino-cache: new command moved from 'btrfs check' implementing the same as option --clear-ino-cache (to be deprecated and removed in the future)
- dump-tree: allow '-' in tree identifier names for option -t
- drop short option and add long option to enable squota
- tune space reservation and batch size for block-group-tree conversion
- scrub status: print correct value of "Bytes scrubbed" for unfinished runs
- qgroup show: fix crash when attempting to print path of stale qgroups
- move build of raid-stripe-tree out for testing but it's still considered experimental
- shell completion updates
- sync raid-stripe-tree code with kernel
- build fixes
- new and updated tests
