It's right around the corner:)

Seriously speaking there are three projects going on:

- UFS+J - journaling for UFS2 (Scott Long is responsible for it),
- XFS - read-only support is in the base system and read-write support
  in development (AFAIK),
- gjournal (not the gjournal project from SoC), developed by me.
  The work is finished. This is device (GEOM) level journaling, but
  allows for UFS journaling as well. I'm currently in the process of
  testing it. It allows for other cool things as well... :)
