Jerry has posted an excellent summary of the work he and Steve Lawrence architected as part of Project Duckhorn. The project encompassed a number of new features which are detailed here (see the quoted proposal in Jeff Victor's message), here and here. As Jerry discusses, zones and OpenSolaris resource management previously could be combined but it required quite a bit of knowledge to integrate these technologies together. The team was able to define some sensible yet powerful abstractions that really bring to fruition the notion of a container.
