New Sun Ray Software for Trusted Extensions

Oracle has announced the availability of Sun Ray Software 5.4, which fully supports Oracle Solaris 11.1 including the Trusted Extensions features. The Oracle Data Sheet for the Sun Ray Software has a summary of the supported platforms on page 3, and there's a well-documented section in the Administration Guide entitled Configuring Oracle Solaris 11 Trusted Extensions.  All the multilevel desktop features are supported including per-workspace authentication and device allocation for Pulse Audio.

Brilliant :-).

I grabbed a copy of the software the other day, and hope to get some time in the next week or so to test it out.

I also note there's now a version of OVDC for Android; this will make life considerably easier for people who are looking to make tablet form-factor Sun Ray clones. I have a little 8" Android tablet for testing (favouring an iPad for everyday use), so will also give this a go. Incidentally, previous Sun Ray software and OVDC on iPad renders-up a Solaris 10 Trusted Extensions display perfectly.
