    The HAMMER 2.01:01 commit today fixes all bugs reported to date,
    particularly related to simultanious reblocking and pruning. 

    Special thanks to YONETANI Tomokazu and Francois Tigeot for their
    testing and reports!

    Keep those bug reports coming!


    Upcoming work: I am working on a catastrophic HAMMER recovery command.
    Originally I had hoped to get it done this week but bug hunting will
    probably push the completion date to the end of next week.

    HAMMER will always be able to recover from crashes by running its
    UNDO and does not need to be fscked.  The idea is to have a fail-safe
    command in case corruption occurs beyond the control of the HAMMER
    filesystem code.


    NEW MAILING LIST FOR HAMMER PORTERS!  I have a created a new mailing
    list (hammer[-request]@dragonflybsd.org) for people wishing to port
    HAMMER to other operating systems.  This is a specialized list for
    porters only.  All general HAMMER bug reports and comments unrelated
    to porting, as well as announcements, will still be made on the
    bugs@, users@, and kernel@ lists as appropriate.
