Solaris 11 Early Adopter Release
As the Solaris 11 GA release approaches, Oracle have announced the Solaris 11 Early Adopter release. The EA release is an update on the previous Solaris 11 Express, with final features frozen.
The EA Release is aimed at developers, to carry out testing and qualification of their applications. With the feature list and functionality frozen, barring some last minute bug fixes, this is what the final Solaris 11 release will look like.
You can find out more at Oracle’s Solaris 11 Early Adopter page. Download links are direct from there – but a quick warning: the only supported SPARC systems are M and T series kit.
Now’s the time to get to grips with the Automated Installer, ZFS root, and the other changes that Solaris 11 will bring.
