+ - Open Source exFAT Reaches 1.0 Status

Submitted by Titus Andronicus
Titus Andronicus (588015) writes "fuse-exfat, a GPLv3 implementation of the exFAT file system for Linux, FreeBSD, and OS X has reached 1.0 status, according to an announcement from Andrew Nayenko, the primary developer.

exFAT is a file system designed for sneaker-netting flash drives and memory cards between and among Windows, OS X, and consumer electronics devices. It was introduced by Microsoft in late 2006.

Will fuse-exfat cut into MS's juicy exFAT licensing revenue? Will MS litigate fuse-exfat's developers and users into patent oblivion? Will there be a DKMS dynamic kernel module version of the software, similar to the ZFS on Linux project?

ReadWrite, The H, and Phoronix cover the story."
