Features found in Linux 2.6

The past three years have seen many discussions of ext2/3 development. Some of the planned features [15] have been implemented and integrated into the mainline kernel during these three years, including directory indexing, reservation based block allocation, online resizing, extended attributes, large inode support, and extended attributes in large inode. In this section, we will give an overview of the design and the implementation for each feature.
