OpenSolaris back on track.

OS

It would appear that the OpenSolaris project is back on track. This is a bit long overdue. The acquisition of Sun by Oracle left a few projects in questionable states. It was unknown as to whether Oracle would continue supporting these open source projects. OpenSolaris was included in that list.

The great news is, Oracle locked down b134 (which can be obtained at Genunix). It is going to be build for internal testing and we are possibly looking at a May release. I sure do hope they clarify the release name and rename it from 2010.03 to 2010.05.

All of this can be read here.

Bodhi 4.0.0 Alpha Release

Not only is our first 4.0.0 alpha release here – but it is here relatively on schedule. If all goes according to plan we will have something stamped as stable before September hits. I would just like to be clear that this is far from a polished / finished product. I would encourage anyone wanting to write a review to wait to do so until our stable release. If you are not someone who is interested in helping find issues please wait as well. Read more
