FOSS Evaluation Packages for Solaris 11.3

Lukas Rovensky
Senior Manager, Software Development

Today Oracle released a set of Selected FOSS Component packages that can be used with/on Solaris 11.3. These
packages provide customers with evaluation copies of new and updated versions of FOSS ahead of officially
supported Oracle Solaris product releases.

These packages are available at the Oracle Solaris product release repository
for customers running Oracle Solaris 11.3 GA. The source code used to build the components is available at
the Solaris Userland Project on Java.net. The packages are not supported
through any Oracle support channels. Customers can use the software at their own risk.

A detailed how-to guide outlines how to access the selected FOSS evaluation
packages, configure IPS publishers, determine what FOSS components are new or updated, and identify available packages and
download/install them. The guide also contains recommendations for customers with support contracts.

The table of components below contains the available selected FOSS components that are new or updated since
the release of Oracle Solaris 11.3 GA:
