OpenSolaris has now switched to SunStudio 11
By vtatkar on Aug 02, 2006
Just saw this email from the OpenSolaris folks; the conversion from Sun Studio 10 to 11 has been in the works for a while now and now its completed!
Sun Studio 11 software is available for the OpenSolaris Community
Sun Studio 11 software can now be used by the OpenSolaris Community, as the ON Consolidation, now builds with Sun Studio 11.
It can be downloaded from the Tools community at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/tools/sun_studio_tools/sun_studio_11_tools/
note: This is a tarball image of Studio 11 with all the necessary patches already incorporated for ON builds.
I should add that we compile several other applications during every build cycle (current list is around 140 or so and counting various version numbers, its around 400). I have asked for this list to be published around the time we release Sun Studio Express 2 binaries. Yes, we eat our own dogfood at Sun and getting our various C/C++/Fortran offerings compiled to take advantage of the latest compilers is a major initiative.
