What is the latest update regarding true interoperability of the ZFS volumes between each supported OS.

It is possible to create a filesystem (anywhere) that can be imported on any
implementation of ZFS as well as any version.

One just have to be VERY careful when creating it - you need to figure out the
smallest denominator. As in, what pool and filesystem version and what features
are supported.

Figuring out THAT information can be somewhat tricky though, but it's usually
specified in each implementation.
If you want to be safe, don't build a pool any higher than version 28. That should keep your options fairly open. Some keep at pool version 26 so they can use the zfs-fuse module.
