OpenSolaris 2008.11 Release Candidate
By Dave Miner-Oracle on Nov 08, 2008
One notable change is that we've decided to start releasing pre-built images for USB flash memory devices. You will need to use Solaris/OpenSolaris to create them, as the usbcopy script used to transfer them uses some Solaris-specific interfaces. Contributions to make this work on other platforms would be welcomed, of course.
The installer has changed very little since 2008.05, as our installation efforts have been spent on building the Automated Installation preview, the Distribution Constructor, and adding zones support to the Snap Upgrade boot environment management code. Though I should mention that there are some nice new graphic billboards during the install process itself!
Please give it a try and help us get the last bit of polish on this release before it goes final. If you find bugs, check out the notes on how to report bugs.
