Unfortunately ZFS version 28 is the last one released by Oracle to the public. Later versions will not be available, so the good stuff like encryption will probably not come to FreeBSD for quite some time.

Lot of original ZFS developers has joined Illumos/OpenIndiana. Even the head architect and creator of ZFS have quit Oracle. These developers from Sun have already developed ZFS functionality that Oracle does not have. The FreeBSD developers does not know how to develop ZFS functionality, they just port it from the original ZFS developers.

So if you run OpenSolaris, you can easily upgrade to OpenIndiana via IPS package systems, and then you can dualboot via snapshots in GRUB.
