Selected FOSS Evaluation Packages (May 2017)

Lukas Rovensky
Senior Manager, Software Development

Today Oracle released evaluation copies of new and updated versions of selected FOSS components 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 at GitHub. 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 tables of components below contains the available selected FOSS components that are new or updated since the last release of evaluation copies of new and updated versions of selected FOSS components.
