New version 74.3.0 available at the developer's website.

"This installer is a feature release of the MacZFS-74.x code line. It provides the same pool and file system revision as MacZFS-74.0 to MacZFS-74.2, but adds full support for the "ashift" property (for zpool create and add), a working ztest and zdb utilities, updated manpages and support for more than 80 columns in zpool iostat output. It will install on MacOSX Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion and Mountain Lion."

FYI, this is only an update for Mountain Lion installation - the code base is the same as 74.1.0 otherwise. If you don't have Mountain Lion, you don't need to install this.

It's a giant shame that ZFS never made it into OS X. ZFS is wildly superior to HFS+.

Because I can't use MacZFS to create bootable partitions, or partitions supporting Spotlight, it doesn't make much sense for me to install it. But for bulk storage of data, especially spanning multiple volumes, this is a great solution.

Eventually, Apple will *have to* phase out HFS+. Maybe by then, they'll have so much money they can just get Oracle to sell them the rights to ZFS. A man can dream.

Ten's Complement has been bought by GreenBytes - a company with a lame name that has no consumer-oriented products - and is no longer in existence. For GreenBytes's propaganda re ZEVO, go to:

I'm puzzled. Dustin in on the Google code MacZFS project team, yet this "8.0" update does not appear on the official wiki page (http://code.google.com/p/maczfs/).

Where exactly does this release fit in?

Does it matter? If it does, then Visit Developer's Site. That which is hidden will be made open unto thee.
