Today, marks the birth of the OpenZFS project: a cross-platform
effort to ensure the continued evlolution of the ZFS file system.

The full announcement can be found here on the OpenZFS project

For developers and users of FreeBSD, the formation of OpenZFS
clarifies the future of ZFS support for our platform.  The FreeBSD
project is now an equal partner in defining the course for ZFS.
OpenZFS combines the man power of the FreeBSD, Illumos, Linux, and
MacOS communities to provide a level of test coverage, feature
development, documenation, and support that wasn't possible with
our separate efforts.  Most importantly, OpenZFS will improve
platform interoperability and reduce fragmentation of ZFS

Today is an exciting day for ZFS and the FreeBSD platform.  I
encourage you to browse http://www.open-zfs.org and to get involved.
You are officially invited to help make the future of OpenZFS!
