SubjectRe: [fuse-devel] [ANNOUNCE] Filesystem in Userspace - 2.2

I've just ported my filesystem to 2.2-pre6 and was able to throw away
about 300 lines of code, the filehandle stuff is great. I was hoping to
give it a thorough test and report back before 2.2 was released but you
beat me to it.

It just keeps getting better and better, well done!
