Filed under
OS

The OpenSolaris project developers have released the final version 2008.11, four weeks after the release candidate and in line with their six-monthly release cycle. Apart from Firefox 3, Gnome 2.24 and OpenOffice 3, which are mainly intended for desktop use, the operating system also offers a complete web stack, including an Apache web server and a 64-bit version of the MySQL database. For handling data backups within the default ZFS file system, the developers integrated a service for generating automatic snapshots as well as the graphical [http://blogs.sun.com/erwann/entry/zfs_on_the_desktop_zfs" ZFS Time Slider] tool. With this tool users can conveniently navigate through the various archived file versions.
