Comment On This Article

The first release candidate for OpenSolaris 2008.11 came out two weeks ago and now Sun has announced the availability of the second release candidate. OpenSolaris 2008.11 RC2 is based upon the Solaris Nevada Build 101b code-base and new packages include the NVIDIA Cg Toolkit and visual panels for MySQL and Sysid. The release announcement for OpenSolaris 2008.11 RC2 can be read on the mailing list.

OpenSolaris 2008.11 was planned for release in November, hence its name, but it doesn't look like it will actually be delivered this month. According to the public relations firm contracted by Sun, this next OpenSolaris release will arrive in "early December" (at some point after the 2nd of December). However, it doesn't look like it will be renamed to OpenSolaris 2008.12.
