Solaris Express 8/04

Solaris Express 08/04 which is based on build 63 should be available for download by August 17 (note this is August 17 in the US), if the announcements that I have seen are anything to go by.

I’ll talk about some of these in more detail in later blogs, but the new features for the release include:

  • DHCP Event Scripting
  • DHCP for Logical Interfaces
  • x86: Sun Validation Test Suite 6.0
  • Kernel Modular Debugger
  • Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5
  • Zones-Wide Resource Control
  • Stream Control Transmission Protocol
  • Zebra Multi-Protocol Routing Suite
  • IPsec and NAT-Traversal
  • Enhancement to the nfsmapid Daemon
  • sendmail Version 8.13
  • Per-thread Mode Enhancement
  • perzone Audit Policy
  • OpenSSL and OpenSSL PKCS#11 Engine
  • x86: Fibre Channel Connectivity for Storage Devices
  • BIND 9
  • Samba
  • Flex 2.5.4a
  • SIP Proxy Server
  • libusb 0.1.8

Remember that you will need the three software cd images to install Solaris Express.

As usual, all docs are on docs.sun.com without password protection.
