Yesterday Sun announced that the latest version of OpenSolaris is out
OpenSolaris provides a platform for developers to take their work from testbed to worldwide deployment. New features in OpenSolaris include Time Slider, an easy to use graphical interface that brings powerful ZFS functionality, like instant snapshots, to all users. Developers also have expanded access to repositories allowing them to get innovations out to all OpenSolaris users through the updated package manager. Sun also extended OpenSolaris subscription options to meet the growing needs of customers who are deploying open source solutions. Customers wanting to run OpenSolaris as their OS of choice now have two affordable subscription support plans from Sun – production and essentials – depending on their technology and business needs.
