S3QL is a file system that stores all its data online. It supports Amazon S3, Google Storage, and OpenStack and effectively provides you with a hard disk of dynamic, infinite capacity that can be accessed from any computer with Internet access. S3QL provides a standard, full featured Unix file system that is conceptually indistinguishable from any local file system. Additional features include compression, encryption, data de-duplication, immutable trees, and snapshotting, which make it especially suitable for online backup and archiving. The design favors simplicity and elegance over performance and feature-creep. Care has been taken to make the source code as readable and serviceable as possible. Solid error detection, error handling, and extensive automated test cases are provided.

This is the first stable release of S3QL. This decision was made after two years of beta testing did not reveal any data-critical bugs. An occasional assertion error when calling flushcache or unmounting has been fixed. A race condition has been fixed. no longer has an --init option; instead, there is --reconstruct-state o. The size of symbolic links is now reported as the length of the target instead of zero. Man pages have been added for all S3QL commands.
