To mark the one year anniversary of the creation of OpenIndiana, there's a new OpenIndiana release. OpenIndiana 151a is this new release that is timed one year after this OpenSolaris fork arrived following the fallout from Oracle killing off OpenSolaris and Solaris development in the open.

OpenIndiana 151a introduces Linux KVM support that was ported from the Linux kernel for virtualization, ZFS file-system enhancements, package updates, and more.

The OpenIndiana 151a release notes is available from this page with more details about this first OpenIndiana release in many months.

Here's what the project said when emailing us:

"Today, the OpenIndiana project is pleased to announce the next development release of the open source, enterprise operating system. OpenIndiana build 151a is now available for 32- and 64-bit x86 systems. We hope you 're as excited as we are for the first complete platform for servers and desktops that offers the full power of the virtualisation, observability, management, networking, and storage technologies from the illumos project."
