Wikipedia has a nice table comparing the different ports of ZFS [1]
According to it, both the FreeBSD port and this Native Linux port (LLNL)
are based on zpool version 28, for which the relevant changelog is also
detailed on Wikipedia [2].

For the Linux port, the ZFS Posix Layer (ZPL) is available from version
0.6.0-rc1 and is expected to be completely stabilized for version 0.6.0 [3]
