OberFS is an OS-agnostic high-speed filesystem. It is two to ten times faster than filesystems such as NTFS and Ext2. It stores all file metadata in RAM and puts files used sequentially on adjacent sectors and tracks.

Release Notes: This proof of technology release launches Firefox in 2 seconds. The only cheat is that actual smart read-ahead doesn't exist yet, and so is simulated by a big read-ahead.
Release Notes: Using the Dokan library (sometimes called FUSE for Windows), code now mounts a real Windows file system. (Or you can still emulate if you want.)
Release Notes: In preparation for testing against the Connectathon Test Suite one test at a time, this release adds hard links and a link/unlink test, as well as code cleanup and organization. Code is still early proof-of-concept.
