Albert White
Manager, Software Maintenance Engineering

We've just released SRU 21 for Oracle Solaris 11.4. It is available via 'pkg update' from the support repository or by downloading the SRU from My Oracle Support Doc ID 2433412.1.

  • Solaris printing has been updated to use cups-2.3.1, cups-filters-1.25.11, ghostscript-9.27, hplip-3.19.5 & gutenprint-5.2.13 in place of the outdated cups-1.4.5 software. Details on migrating to this latest printer software are in doc 2664326.1.
