Not a lot have happend since the last status update on FUSE for Windows. I have moved a bit around, so I have got time to hack on WinFUSE, but according to Walco’s Oct 22nd, 2007 comment:
A small update on the rent-a-coder project: I’ve contacted the developer, and he told me the fuse-win32 code cannot be published under the extended contract with the software buyer, at least not for the coming four months. Another interesting note is that the API is Fuse inspired, but not 100% Fuse compatible.
Which means that by now QualityDev should be allowed to release his code.
I have made a new bid request for QualityDev, now that he might be able to open source his code.
I think its very important to be 100% FUSE API compatiable. So creating a cross platform filesystem can be as easy as creating any other cross platform application. So even if QualityDev releases his code will have to make it 100% compliant.
If this fails I suggest that we begin reimplementing FUSE for Windows, which might make it easier to port it to other Windows versions.
I plan to spend this year’s The Camp events on FUSE for Windows, either re-engineering it, or porting it to other windows platforms. You are more than welcome to join, but hurry we have limited capacity (40).
