Solaris 11.2: Changes since beta to bundled software packages

In April, when Solaris 11.2 Beta was released, I posted a list of changes to bundled software packages between Solaris 11.1 & 11.2. Now that the final release of Solaris 11.2 reached General Availability last week, I've gone back to compare the beta release via the GA release.

As you would expect, there are many fewer changes in the three months between beta & GA than in the 18 months before that. Most of the change came from upgrading the OpenStack packages from the Grizzly (2013.1) release to the Havana (2013.2) release, and adding the Swift OpenStack Object Storage components and other packages like Django which the new OpenStack components needed. There are also some general bug fix or security fix updates, such as upgrading OpenSSL from 1.0.1g to 1.0.1h.

One other change that showed up when gathering data for this list was that the Oracle Database 12c prerequisites package was renamed between beta & GA to better match the database naming style - previously it was called group/prerequisite/oracle/oracle-rdbms-server-12cR1-preinstall but is now group/prerequisite/oracle/oracle-rdbms-server-12-1-preinstall. Fortunately, you don't have to type in the whole FMRI to install it, pkg install oracle-rdbms-server-12-1-preinstall is enough.

Detailed list of changes

This table shows most of the changes to the bundled packages between the 11.2 beta released in April, and the 11.2 GA release in July.

As before, some were excluded for clarity, or to reduce noise and duplication. All of the bundled packages which didn’t change the version number in their packaging info are not included, even if they had updates to fix bugs, security holes, or add support for new hardware or new features of Solaris.
