OpenSolaris build 108 now available

Per the usual drill, the pkg.opensolaris.org/dev repository has been updated with build 108 packages, and the various ISO images are on the DLC torrent and genunix.org.  See David's announcement email for more information: [osol-announce] OpenSolaris development package repository build 108, x86/x64/SPARC

Most of the boot and X issues that were present in 106 and 107 will continue to be seen with this build, but fixes in 109 should improve the situation.  Also, for those of you experimenting with the Automated Installer, you'll note that the server setup images for it have dropped in size by about 50%.  We finally finished up refactoring some of the installation packages to isolate the GNOME dependencies, which allowed us to remove a whole pile of packages from those images.
Comments:

How about the boot-up time issue? Will there be any priority for improving the boot-up time? The os0811/0906 are so slooooooooooooooow compared to the various newly released Linux distros, as well as the initial release of OpenSolaris (os0805 RC1/2). :-(

Wayne, I haven't noticed any significant regression on my systems. If you've got some numbers, please file a bug.
