From Forza's ramblings

Btrfs-progs v6.7.1[edit | edit source]

Image captured by the James Webb Telescope showcasing the NGC 1365 spiral galaxy. Vivid hues of orange and blue dominate the scene, highlighting the intricate swirls and spirals of stardust and gas. The galaxy's bright core emits a yellowish glow, with numerous stars dotting the cosmic landscape. Darker regions within the spirals suggest areas dense with cosmic material, obscuring the light behind them.
This spiral galaxy was observed as part of the Physics at High Angular resolution in Nearby GalaxieS (PHANGS) program, a large project that includes observations from several space- and ground-based telescopes of many galaxies to help researchers study all phases of the star formation cycle, from the formation of stars within dusty gas clouds to the energy released in the process that creates the intricate structures revealed by Webb’s new images. NGC 1365 is 56 million light-years away in the constellation Fornax.

Btrfs progs v6.7.1 was released today. Sources can, as usual, be found at and


  • convert: raid-stripe-tree can be now enabled for the target filesystem
  • mkfs:
    • handle lifetime of open file descriptors so it does not trigger udev that could miss to create the UUID symlinks in /dev
    • update warning when CPU page size does not match sector size
    • merge features in summary, no more distinction of incompat and runtime to match the semantics of option -O
  • fi show: fix recognizing raw device mapper paths


  • CI updates, build images updates
  • minor cleanups
  • minor sync with kernel
  • documentation updates, fix links to labels in included directories
