Oracle Solaris 11.3 SRU 29 Released

Albert White
Manager, Software Maintenance Engineering

We've just released Oracle Solaris 11.3 SRU 29. It contains some important security fixes and enhancements. SRU29 is now available from My Oracle Support Doc ID 2045311.1, or via 'pkg update' from the support repository at https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/support .

Features included in this SRU include:

  • libdax support on X86

    • This feature enables the use of DAX query operations on x86 platforms. The ISV and Open Source communities can now develop DAX programs on x86 platforms. The application developed on x86 platforms can be executed on SPARC platform with no modifications and the libdax API will choose DAX operations supported by the platform. The libdax library on x86 uses software emulation and does not require any change in the user developed applications.

  • Oracle VM Server for SPARC has been updated to version

  • The Java 8, Java 7, and Java 6 packages have been updated.

The SRU also updates the following components which have security fixes:

  • p7zip has been updated to 16.02

  • Firefox has been updated to 52.6.0esr

  • ImageMagick has been updated to 6.9.9-30

  • Thunderbird has been updated to 52.6.0

  • Wireshark has been updated to 2.4.4
