    OmniOS 151032 stable is out
    This is the most feature rich update for Open-ZFS and OmniOS ever.


    Release notes


    New Open-ZFS features:
    - native ZFS encryption
    - raw zfs send of locked and encrypted filesystems
    - sequential/sorted resilver (can massively reduce resilver/scrub time
    - manual and auto trim for the SSDs/NVMes in a pool
    - Allocation classes for metadata, dedup and small io (mixed pool from disk/SSD/NVMe)
    a warning at this point: a zpool remove of a special vdev with a different ashift than the pool crashes Illumos/ZoL
    - force ashift on zpool create/add
