excited about linux 3.6

Linux 3.6 it’s been released, with some important features:

  • Btrfs: subvolume quotas, quota groups, snapshot diff, cross-subvolume file clones
  • Suspend to disk and memory at the same time
  • Support for SMBv2 protocol
  • TCP Fast Open (client side)
  • Bufferbloat fight: TCP small queues
  • Safe swap over NFS/NBD
  • ext4: better quota support

Looking forward into distributions to adopt it.
