The Technical Details: April 29 Oracle Solaris 11.2 Launch

You may have already heard that we're going to hold the Oracle Solaris 11.2 launch in New York City in a few days, and that there will also be a live webcast of the event.

One of the things that the webcast will feature that won't be part of the live event will be additional technical presentations where Solaris engineers will go into more detail about some of the new features that are being added. VP for Solaris core engineering Markus Flierl gives a quick rundown:


If this sounds interesting to you, you should register now. The event starts at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT, with Mark Hurd and John Fowler. Markus then moves on to the more technical part of the in-person event, which will then be followed by the web-only deep-dive presentations.

During the live event, we'll have engineering folks and others on Twitter, tracking hashtag #solaris (apologies in advance to Stanislaw Lem fans).

Oracle Solaris 11 pkg fix

Bob Netherton explains why Solaris 11 pkg fix is his new friend.

"So far so good. Then comes an oops... This is where you generally say a few things to yourself, and then promise to quit deleting configuration files and directories when you don't know what you are doing. Then you recall that the new Solaris 11 packaging system has some ability to correct common mistakes (like the one I just made)."

Great Solaris 10 features paving the way to Solaris 11

Karoly Vegh writes on the Oracle Systems Blog Austria about what you can do with Solaris 10 today that will get you ready for Solaris 11.

Even today, many people still use Solaris 10 as if it were a patch update to Solaris 8 or 9, missing out on the power behind Live Upgrade, Zones, resource management, and ZFS. Learning more about these will help set your feet on the road to the even more sophisticated capabilities of Oracle Solaris 11.
