FreeBSD 10.0-CURRENT is at zpool version 5000 as well. It supports ZFS-independent full disk encryption through geli and gbde. I've been using ZFS on geli since the ZFS import in 2007 and while there are still a couple of unresolved bugs, overall I'm quite satisfied. Of course FDE is less flexible than the per-dataset encryption offered by Oracle ZFS, but personally I prefer to encrypt all the data in the pool anyway and Oracle ZFS is not designed to do that: https://blogs.oracle.com/darren/entry/zfs_encryption_what_is_on I certainly wouldn't mind additionally being able to use encryption inside ZFS, though.
