On behalf of the XFS for FreeBSD project, I would
like to announce a new snapshot which you can download
and try.  The snapshot is available here:


- works only with latest FreeBSD-CURRENT and FreeBSD-6 kernels
- read-only access to XFS partitions only
- highly experimental and not finished yet, this is a work in progress
- do not use for production work

- several kernel panics fixed
- preliminary support for reading extended attributes
- xfsprogs in ports ( sysutils/xfsprogs ), needed for mkfs.xfs

The XFS for FreeBSD project is porting the SGI XFS filesystem
to FreeBSD, based on publically available GPL'd sources of
SGI's XFS for Linux.  The XFS for FreeBSD project is not
affiliated with SGI, and SGI should not be contacted with
bug reports regarding XFS for FreeBSD.

Many thanks to Russell Cattelan and Alexander Kabaev for their work
on this project.

We would appreciate your feedback and bug reports.
