9P The Simple Distributed File System from Bell Labs


More news ;) (2008/06/30)

Many things have happened during the last year, but I have been too busy to keep this page updated, for the moment you can visit NineTimes for news about 9P, Plan 9, Inferno and related stuff.

I’m still keeping the the implementations and applications pages more or less up to date, and I might post here about the new items there at some point (first I need to migrate this page to one that is easier to maintain and with a rss feed and so on).

Web9 Google Summer of Code project (2007/06/18)

As part of the GSoC Anant Narayanan is implementing both PHP bindings for 9P (using libixp) and a 9P implementation in pure JavaScript.

The php part of the project is almost ready, and work on the JS side is starting, for more info see http://gsoc.cat-v.org/projects/web9/, you can check out the code from the mercurial repository here: http://gsoc.cat-v.org/hg/.

New 9p.scm (2007/06/18)

Neale has released a 9P implementation in Scheme. I will add it to the implementations table shortly.

New acme-sac release: 0.9.5 (2007/06/15)

Caerwyn announced a new release of acme-sac:

Changes this past week include integrating factotum into more
tools and improving the mail support. There's still a lot of work
that can be done here, so will likely continue to be an area
of activity.

See full announcement for detailed changelog. It can be downloaded here.

Documentation (2007/06/02)

A new version of this site also hosted at cat-v.org can be found at its own domain: http://9p.cat-v.org. It is still in testing, please let me know if you find any issues.

There are two other new sites at cat-v.org: harmful.cat-v.org dedicated evil ideas and technologies (I would love if someone wants to write an article about NFS, FUSE or SOAP for it, if nobody does I will eventually get to it, but it will take time) and gsoc.cat-v.org dedicated to the Inferno and Plan 9 participation in Google Summer of Code.

Added to the documentation section Charles Forsyth’s excellent paper ‘The Ubiquitous File Server in Plan 9’.
