Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) 1.0 stable release

FUSE lets you write your very own filesystem, as an ordinary program. It has a simple yet comprehensive interface, and provides an easy way to create a virtual filesystem for just about any application.

FUSE is here

Have you ever wanted to create your own filesystem? If the answer is yes, then FUSE is for you. FUSE provides a very simple library interface to create virtual filesystems running in userspace as ordinary programs. Currently fuse is only implemented on linux kernels 2.4.X.
