OpenSolaris build 93, with ISO's

A belated note that, along with the pkg.opensolaris.org repository update to build 93, we've resumed releasing ISO's of the live CD. David's announcement has the details. Though we chose this time to make them available only via BitTorrent, our friends in the community have provided HTTP mirrors at www.genunix.org and Blastwave in the US and China. I see that our friends over at Phoronix wasted no time in providing a review. But guys, a bit of inside info: none of us calls this upcoming release "Jericho".

You'll note that the primary language ISO is actually too large for a CD; if you have to burn to CD media, then use the "all languages" image. Both ISO's have put on 50 MB of weight since the 2008.05 release, I'm in the middle of analyzing where that space went and putting together a diet proposal. Watch for that in the next week or two.
