Solaris: Release 10/08 Now Available


Just received an email this morning from Sun that Solaris 10 (10/08) is now available for download. This release includes the following features:

ZFS boot on x86 and SPARC systems
Support for new Intel Xeon, AMD Opteron, UltraSPARC and SPARC64 processor based systems
Visualization enhancements such as Solaris Containers upgrade on attach
Networking and security enhancements
Device drivers for the latest network cards and other peripherals

I will download this release for a new M4000 I will receiving next month, but will probably give it a run on a desktop nearby to try booting from ZFS!!
