Upgrade ZFS from 0.7.13 to 0.8.0 on CentOS Linux

plex88 asked:

I have an CentOS 7.6 machine with zfsonlinux kABI-tracking kmod v.0.7.13 installed.

How can I upgrade ZFS to the newest version? yum update says that i´m up-to-date.

My answer:

You wait for the zfsonlinux project to publish updated packages. If they don’t do so in a reasonable time, then you open an issue on their GitHub.

It appears they missed something. My Fedora boxes all were offered zfs 0.8.0 packages three days ago.

I also suggest you wait, though, as judging from the issues reported, this .0 release appears to have quite a few annoying bugs.
