Google MacFUSE adds Objective-C

MacFUSE 1.3 released

Google has released v1.3 of MacFUSE, its FUSE file system implementation tool for Mac OS X. The most critical addition is the new MacFUSE.framework, which is said to greatly simplify building user-space file systems with Objective-C. To help speed developers along, one of the engineers behind the framework will be lecturing at Thursday's Silicon Valley Cocoaheads meeting, where he will not only teach the framework but offer some file system demos.

The v1.3 update also fixes several bugs, including a Leopard-only problem which prevented sparse disk images on SSHFS from mounting. New changes for Leopard include v2.7.2 of the user-space FUSE library, and a built-in stacking module threadid. This attaches user and group ID to each request coming into the user-space file system. MacFUSE is free, but separate DMG installers are used for Tiger and Leopard.

    Now if Apple would just add Objective-C (back) into WebObjects... though it's probably too late at this point.
