In der OpenSolaris announce Mailingliste wurde gestern Solaris Express 9/07 angekündigt, welches unter anderem einen neuen Installer beinhaltet. Ich werde den neuen installer demnächst ausprobieren und hier darüber berichten.
Die komplette Ankündigung:
Solaris Express Developer Edition 9/07 is now available.
Major highlights of this free OpenSolaris-based distribution
targeted at developers:
- New Solaris installer- the first major rewrite of the Solaris installer since Solaris 8
makes installation much easier.
- D-Light, the GUI tool to bring the power of DTrace to a broad developer audience.
- Service offerings have been augmented with the addition of installation and configuration support.
As with all Solaris Express Developer Edition software,
NetBeans and Sun Studio tools are automatically
installed during system installation.
Solaris Express Developer Edition is built from
the code base that will eventually become the next generation
Solaris release. As a leading edge release it includes
a much more up to date GNOME desktop environment, and much better
support for laptop computers than currently offered by Solaris 10.
Unlike Solaris Express Community Edition which is generated every two weeks,
Developer Edition is a more thoroughly tested release that is made
available every 3 to 4 months.
