Oracle Solaris 11.1 Available Now!

Glynn Foster
Product Manager

As you may have already noticed, Oracle Solaris 11.1 is now available from the download page. This release marks nearly a year of development with some really exciting new features, hundreds of bug fixes, and another step towards a product that enterprise customers should feel utterly confident in deploying. We've made some great strides in fixing the frustrations that our customers care about - it is now even easier to deploy, update and manage, and our feature set is more integrated than ever to give you a superior experience.

Go download now! If you've got an existing Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 installation you won't need to re-install again. Simply use the packaging tools and follow this useful How to Update to Oracle Solaris 11.1 using IPS guide.

We're also hosting an online event on the 7th November where we'll talk about Oracle Solaris 11.1, some of the new features included in this release, and where we're going generally with the operating system. Come join us!

    After reviewing it under the microscope. is it worth updating it to 11.1 , higher is the quality?

    Yes, absolutely. In general, we recommend all customers to install the latest updates. Not only will they include new features (and enhancements to existing features), but also several bug fixes and security fixes. With the new packaging system, updating is *significantly* easier. If you experience a problem with an update, you can simply roll back to an older ZFS boot environment.
