"Well, it's been almost a week since the latest stupid bug was found in the JFFS2 code, so I suppose it's time to admit to the world that it exists."

"JFFS2, developed by Red Hat, is a complete reimplementation of a journalling filesystem for FLASH devices, based on the original JFFS from Axis Communications AB."

"Improvements of JFFS2 over the original JFFS include:

  • Improved wear levelling and garbage collection performance.
  • Compression
  • Improved RAM footprint and response to system memory pressure.
  • Improved concurrency and support for suspending flash erases
  • Support for hard links."
