EROFS filesystem update and its future

EROFS aims to be a generic read-only filesystem for image-based distribution and runtime with high performance. It has been a upstream part since Linux kernel 4.19(staging) and 5.4 with many adaptions landed. In the past years, it gained several enhancements for container image and embedded use cases, such as FSDAX, EROFS over fscache, data deduplication, idmapped mounts, etc. This presentation will show the recent updates and give the future roadmap. Hopefully more people could get interested in EROFS and join us.
