News, tips, partners, and perspectives for the Oracle Solaris operating system

Even more FOSS software available today on Solaris

Caryl Takvorian
Principal Software Engineer

Today Oracle released several new FOSS packages for Solaris 11, including the Go Language (on SPARC!), as well as updates to existing versions for evaluation on the Solaris 11.3 release repository.

The list of new and updated components is described in this Selected FOSS Evaluation Packages (May 2017) article.

The software is released unsupported and addresses a critical need for customers and ISVs to get new and updated FOSS components for evaluation purposes on a continual basis ahead of Oracle's officially supported product releases.

You can join the discussion with other Solaris developers, users and sysadmins on our FOSS on Solaris community page
