    2.0's biggest features are going to be the new filesystem,
    called HAMMER
Will be HAMMER the standard file system of the root partition in v2.0?
No. It will be still alpha or beta-quality.

    The ultimate goal of the project is transparent machine clustering.
When DragonFlyBSD will optimized for transparent machine clustering,
can it than used as operating system for desktop system or is that no
(more) recommended?
And I habe another question:
When comes the results of the Google Summer of Code into DragonFlyBSD?
In Version 2.0 or later?
I don't think version 2.0 will be delayed because of a Summer of Code

I readed this text but its very hard to understand this. :(
Do you speak German? :)

 Take a look here:
 Most notable:

  * Process checkpointing
  * Journaling (HAMMER will replace it as far as I understand)
  * VKernel
  * Varsym
 Not to forget dntpd, dma and all the good pkgsrc stuff ;-)

That is it what I have search :-)
But keep in mind that those features are not too useful for a desktop-user.
