Improvements to Patch Cluster pages on SunSolve

My team and I have been working with the SunSolve team on improvements to the Patch Cluster pages on SunSolve.  These improvements went live on April 20, 2009.

The old "Recommended Patch Clusters" and "Recommended and Security Patches" pages have been combined into a single Patch Cluster & Patch Bundle Downloads page.

A Notice Board section at the top of the page will be used to alert customers to current issues.

Click on the cluster headings to see a brief description of the purpose of the cluster, with links to view the cluster README as well as a download link.   The date the cluster was last updated and the size of the cluster are also shown.

No change has been made to the underlying cluster file names, so scripts using 'wget' to access the patch clusters should be unaffected.

This is part of an ongoing effort to improve our patch presentation to customers.

As before, customers need a valid support contract in order to be able to access patch clusters. 

If you are not registered in Member Support Center, simply log into SunSolve and associated one or more support contracts with your Sun Online Account using the "Change Contract" option in the top right hand menu.

If you are registered in Member Support Center, your contracts will be automatically associated with your account (and the "Change Contract" option will not be shown when you log into SunSolve).
