"Sun Microsystems has further loosened its grip on its Network File System (NFS) protocol which the Internet Engineering Taskforce (IETF) is turning into an industry standard.

Sun is releasing the sourcecode for a key component of the protocol and doubled the level of funding it began last year for an independent development of a Linux implementation of NFS version 4 - the version the IETF is making an industry standard protocol.

The component, called the transport independent remote procedure call (TI-RPC), will be available free to developers at Sun's website. NFS is used to enable NFS-supporting multivendor platforms to share, receive and send files."
