    I would wager on a lot sooner then that.

    Well, 2.6.34 is in a little more than a year since there are about 4 kernel releases a year

    I'm thinking more like in 6 months. It's a new filesystem, it doesn't have to go through all the worries such as backwards compatibility that a file system such as ext4 has to go through. I have it will hit 1.0 status fairly soon. 2.6.31 or 2.6.32.

    so... this should be taken as most probable.

    Well I recall somewhere in the lkml where Chris was initially aiming for a December 1.0 status but later decided that would be a bit to ambitious as it got closer to Dec. the wiki is still saying 4th Q / 2008. Now with inclusion with the kernel he also expects development to further accelerate.
