Availability of bugfix releases for LTS

Asked by zrav on 2017-06-03

I welcomed Ubuntus decision to support ZFS officially, but ironically it has led to worse update availability. Currently no up-to-date bugfix release of zfs on linux is available for Xenial. We experience serious issues with the provided version 0.6.5.6 (uncontrolled ARC growth leading to OOM killers etc.), which is fixed in newer ZoL releases. Please consider honoring the long term support commitment and providing bugfix versions for LTS Ubuntu during its supported lifecycle.

2. If there are severe bugs in the version provided with xenial, then please create a bug report and mention that these problems are solved in the newer version.
