Coda is an advanced networked filesystem. The project has been developed at CMU since 1987 by the systems group of M. Satyanarayanan. in the SCS department.

Coda is a distributed filesystem with its origin in AFS2. It has many features that are very desirable for network filesystems. Currently, Coda has several features not found elsewhere.

1. disconnected operation for mobile computing
2. is freely available under a liberal license
3. high performance through client side persistent caching
4. server replication
5. security model for authentication, encryption and access control
6. continued operation during partial network failures in server network
7. network bandwith adaptation
8. good scalability
9. well defined semantics of sharing, even in the presence of network failures

What's New in This Release:

Coda now works on 64-bit systems.
The client and server were successfully built and used on a machine with em64t extensions with a 64-bit Linux kernel.
The new RVM-1.14 and RPC2-2.5 releases also incorporate some essential 64-bit fixes.
Another welcome change is that venus now tries to keep cached access rights available for users even across system reboots or client restarts, which should improve life for people who frequently shut down or dual boot their machines.
