OpenSolaris build 22 on it's way
By Alan Hargreaves-Oracle on Sep 10, 2005
Some excerpts from #opensolaris earlier today. It's obviously the place to hang out to discover stuff.
Note that I've edited out quite a bit of other conversation and that the times listed are Australia/NSW.
(09:14:00) Tpenta: hi steve, how comes the next drop? (09:14:21) stevel-: x86 looks done. having some silly nits with sparc. i should have it ready by tonight.

(14:26:05) stevel-: yeah. (14:26:18) stevel-: got everything done for the build 22 delivery (14:26:19) Tpenta: cool, so what do you need to do inorder to get 22 (?) out now? (14:26:28) stevel-: by friday. just as i promised. :-P with 2 and a half whole hours left to spare (14:27:01) stevel-: they need to be pushed out to SDLC, but i don't know how to do that since i don't have an account on ProdTool (14:27:19) stevel-: kupfer said he would login tomorrow and push them out (14:29:28) stevel-: time to go pour some scotch and join my beagle and pass out on the couch (14:44:59) Tpenta: do you mind if I blog that availability shortly? (14:45:10) stevel-: not at all. (14:45:18) stevel-: i'm going to make a blog post too once i finish this scotch (14:45:33) stevel-: though maybe i should do the blog post firs t:-P (14:45:38) stevel-: in any case. go ahead :) (14:45:48) Tpenta: :) (14:45:56) Wez: stevel-: scotch while blogging sounds like a good compromize :) (14:46:10) stevel-: wez: anything with scotch is a good compromise ;-) (14:46:19) stevel- left the room (quit: "outta here").
Steve's made a blog entry about the completion, so now I can do mine :)
By the way, I can certainly empathise with the Scotch comments (which is why I left them there).
Some of the new stuff (as lifted from Steve's blog) include:
- crypto drivers: aes, arcfour, blowfish, des, rsa
- GSS, Kerberos, OpenSSH, OpenSSL, some PAM modules, PKCS11, SASL, crypt, wanboot, & the dprov driver.
