ZFS returns to MacOS?
"We're not quite there yet — but we have some exciting products in development.  Our version of ZFS for Mac OS X, Z-410 Storage, started external beta testing last week.  Expect more announcements soon."
"Our foundational release of ZFS for Mac OS X is targeted at early adopters and those who can't wait to combine the world's most innovative operating system with the world's most advanced file system.
The initial beta evaluation program is in progress (thank you to those participating). We hope to have more product details soon. Those interested in participating in our future test programs can leave their email below."

Solaris ZFS got encryption recently and now Illumos ZFS gets SCSI UNMAP support. Are we going to end up with two diverging implementations of ZFS (ZFS proper and iZFS?) in the long term? I guess it is mostly up to Oracle now - it always has been.
