While digging up some info, from the Microsoft site, I ran into this: "Alternatives to using Transactional NTFS"

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/hh802690%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

 

Abstract

Microsoft strongly recommends developers investigate utilizing the discussed alternatives (or in some cases, investigate other alternatives) rather than adopting an API platform which may not be available in future versions of Windows.

3 years down the road and will re-emerge as a next groundbreaking feature :)


Sincerely,
Alexandr Normuradov

It seems like the rot has already started - certain TxF features are deprecated in Windows 8:

I was considering AlphaFS (for it's TxF capabilities), but the "Alternatives to..." article has warned me off. To be fair, TxF is likely to be around for a few years yet, but the app I am working on will likely out-live it.

Indeed. That said, we should for v1.7 should finalize all current bug fixes/features and in v2 remove all TxF legacy code to make it lightweight and more compatible with Windows mainstream road-map.
