OpenSolaris 2008.11 Released

Posted on December 3, 2008

The crew was so busy getting everything ready for OpenSolaris 2008.11 that they forgot to tell anyone they released it…… so, guess what: Download OpenSolaris 2008.11 Now!

For a great run through of new features, especially from a desktop perspective, please watch Roman’s excellent Whats New in OpenSolaris 2008.11 Screencast.

I know the docs team spent a lot of time on the docs kit for OpenSolaris 2008.11, but I can’t seem to find it… so, think of it as an easter egg, search and be amazed. I’m sure the docs are within the ISO itself.

If your interested in graffiti or modern art, or whatever, behold the new OpenSolaris shirt:

… judge for yourself.

UPDATE: I’m told by several sources that a big launch/announcement event is scheduled for next week, complete with blog blitz, etc. I therefore infere that they wanted to get the release out as close to Nov as possible and thus released early and quiet until the marketing hubbub could occur.
