|Ryan highlighted the increase in
prepackaged software to 2009.06 as well as the introduction of Project
Crossbow and time
slider. "The time slider, which is probably my
favorite OpenSolaris feature, got several enhancements in 2009.06. The
new version has a button for manually initiating a snapshot and has
support for deleting snapshots. There is also a new tool for exploring
the version history of an individual file," he noted.
The reviewer then turned his attention to the OpenSolaris port for the
ARM architecture, providing some history as well as the steps the
project has taken with 2009.06. "The OpenSolaris ARM port is also a
promising development that illustrates the growing versatility of the
operating system," Ryan concluded.
