BTRFS 0.8 is out

You’ve read enough about the road trip? Good news: this posting here isn’t about. Honestly, it was fun without a pc, but kind of strange. So back here I was checking for updates and as far as I can see, Chris Mason released a new version of his btrfs.

So what’s new? The most important change for me is, that the subvolumes can be mounted directly by now – so you’re able to use them without great symlinking tricks to get everything in place. So how’s it done? The mount command:

mount -t btrfs -o subvol=mysubvol /dev/with/btrfs /mount/point
