Released at the end of October was the first preview release of Project Indiana, the Sun desktop distribution being head by Ian Murdock that will officially be known as OpenSolaris. Once at production quality, the Indiana camp intends to push out a new release every six months (similar to Ubuntu's release cycle), but for now it's at three month intervals. The first production release of "OpenSolaris Indiana" is planned for this March, but it's expected that Sun will be releasing an updated "Developer Preview" this month. A release this month has been confirmed by a Sun blog entry and the Indiana mailing list.

This next development release will contain updated packages and other work, but it will not contain Sun Studio, which has led to quite a discussion on the mailing list. When this next Project Indiana release is out, you can be sure that we'll be testing it out. For those that are unfamiliar with Project Indiana, it is more or less Sun's attempt at Solaris for desktops and mobile devices, while being under the OpenSolaris umbrella.
