The last publicly released under opensolaris zpool version, v28, is
incorporated into illumos / openindiana / nexenta / etc. Jim is talking about
how Oracle closed-source after v28, and never issued any public statement
confirming or denying that they were going closed-source. They just never
released any source anymore. So the community spun off with the latest open
source code, and there it is...
Since that time, open source ZFS development has continued, but not at the same
rate and not in the same direction as the oracle closed-source.
