OpenIndiana 2016.04 has been released as the newest version of this operating system based on Illumos and originally derived from OpenSolaris.

OpenIndiana Hipster 2016.04 is the project's first OS release in a half-year. Unfortunately, there aren't many details about the new release. The release announcement simply says, "As always, there were a lot of changes since last snapshot." Update: It looks like the release notes are now up and updates to OpenIndiana 2016.04 include various desktop component updates, GCC 4.9 is now the default user-space compiler, server software was updated, X11 libraries were updated, and more. This is also the last snapshot for supporting pure 32-bit systems.

OpenIndiana Hipster 2016.04 is available in text and GUI versions with ISO and USB images. You can download this new 2016.04 release via
