Google releases MacFUSE

Google today released MacFUSE, an open-source port of the FUSE "Filesystem in Userspace" mechanism previously only available on Linux and FreeBSD systems. MacFUSE offers Mac OS X developers the ability to organize nearly any data into a file system, offering support for most existing Linux-based FUSE file systems on the Mac platform. Amit Singh, an engineering manager for the Mac Client team at Google and author of "Mac OS X Internals" announced the release today during his speech at Macworld titled "Taming Mac OS X Filesystems." MacFUSE is designed to be API-complaint with FUSE, making many existing file systems usable under Mac OS X. The software is available for download from Google's website.
