ZFS Feature Flags in FreeNAS

Western Digital Drives - The Preferred Drives of FreeNAS and TrueNAS CORE
Thanks for the helpful explanation of feature flags by FreeNAS/TrueNAS version.
Thanks a lot! Definitely needed this information for my new build.
This is a great resource to help users determine if they can roll back to the previous version of FreeNAS
I am one of those people that don't update unless an update offers a solution for a problem or offers a new/altered feature that I wan't. Don't fix it if it ain't broken. The ZFS Feature flags where a bit of a problem for me as I was not enable to judge if I should update or not. Now I can act informed and that is great.
Excellent - Concise/Understandable and very comprehensive for such a short article! I posted a question regarding interoperability of ZFS Linux/FreeNAS, and was having trouble understanding the answers - this made it all come together!
Excellent/current information without excessive words.
Great reference for which version supports which feature flags.
I was looking for this information. This told me exactly what I wanted to know in simple and concise format!
It explains the feature flag status, and what the flags are. What more could you want from a feature flags resource?
Apart from an earlier from posting by Ericloewe we didn't have an explanation of the disabled/enabled/active states of ZFS feature flags here in this forum, at least nothing that I'm aware of. Extra Bonus: Feature Flags introduced in 11.2.
Running the nightlies, I noticed the new feature flags had arrived. That was what pushed me to write this stuff down and keep track of new feature flags from now on.
