FUSE for macOS

3.10.3

Extend native file handling in OS X (was OSXFUSE).

Overview

FUSE for macOS (was OSXFUSE) allows you to extend OS X's native file-handling capabilities via third-party file systems. It is a successor to MacFUSE, which is no longer being maintained.

As a user, installing the FUSE for macOS software package will let you use any third-party file system written atop FUSE for macOS or MacFUSE, if you choose to install the MacFUSE compatibility layer. As a developer, you can use the FUSE for macOS SDK to write numerous types of file systems as regular user-space programs. The content of these file systems can come from anywhere: from the local disk, from across the network, from memory, or any other combination of sources.

This package will install the runtime and development components of FUSE for macOS. Please note that no FUSE for macOS-based file systems are included in this package.

What's new in FUSE for macOS

Version 3.10.3:
  • Improve macOS 10.15 compatibility
  • Fix an issue, that can trigger a kernel panic when mounting FUSE volumes with the local option and enabling Spotlight on the volume. For details see #624
  • Improve performance of GETATTR file system operation for file systems based on the Objective-C FUSE framework
  • Add support for 64 bit file system IDs (va_fsid64) on macOS 10.11 and later
  • The license has changed. Starting with the 3.10.0 release, redistributions bundled with commercial software are not allowed without specific prior written permission. Please contact Benjamin Fleischer

Have it on two Mac Pros and a Macbook Air and never had an issue in three years. I think, some reviewers should widen their perspective instead of blaming OSXFuse for everything, including bad weather.

Fuse for macOS is an open source software and the developers have an open Github project. If you are familiar with it, you may leave a ticket in their "Issues" - https://github.com/osxfuse/osxfuse/issues

The current version is 3.9.0, which was released on 3 May (i.e. 3 days before the supposed update to 3.8.3 on MacUpdate)

As others have been pointing out, Fuse v2.8.3 is the release version. Version 3.4.1 is still a developer preview and probably not something the average user should be trying.

Can I use this to make NTFS drives read/writable on El Capitan? If so, how? Thanks

This may solve your question:
https://github.com/osxfuse/osxfuse/wiki/NTFS-3G

"NTFS-3G is an open source cross-platform implementation of the Microsoft Windows NTFS file system with read-write support.... Please note that NTFS-3G and FUSE for OS X are independent projects."

Just installed the latest stable release from osxfuse.github.io on El Capitan. Mind to enable the MacFUSE compatibility, MacFUSE itself will not work. Installed sshfs too and macfusion is working again. I would not install this version (3.3.2 beta), just use latest stable version 2.8.3.

NOTE that the current public release version of OSXFUSE is 2.8.3. The version 3 series is so far a 'Developer Preview' and is NOT intended for general use. That includes version 3.3.1. Visit the developer's website for v2.8.3.

Question here... I am running OS X 10.11.3 and Windows 10 Pro (using Boot Camp) on my MacBook Pro. I'd like to be able to transfer some music files over to the Windows side from the Mac side. Will OSXFUSE let me do this without damaging the Boot Camp installation? Thanks!
