OpenSolaris build 107 now available

Earlier today we pushed out the pkg.opensolaris.org/dev package repository update and the associated ISO images, see the announcement message for detailed notes.  The big news with this release is the upgrade of Xorg to version 1.5.  This will be transparent for most users, but if you have an existing xorg.conf file, such as I do for using the nVidia Twinview feature on a couple of my systems, you'll need to generate a new one.
Comments:

My laptop has i810 graphics with a 1280x768 display that has caused problems in the past with various Linux distributions, but works flawlessly with 2008.11. Xorg won't start when upgraded to build 107, firstly because it tries to load amd64 modules (dirty fix is just to move all the amd64 directories out of the way to make some progress) and secondly because once it's all on 32 bit Xorg dies

Fatal server error:
Couldn't find PLL settings for mode!

I don't know much about X apart from having used it for twenty years so I don't have much more to say...

Ian, xwin-discuss@opensolaris.org would be the best place to get additional help; we're a little outside my X knowledge to be of assistance.
