I am happy to announce that Web Server 7.0 Update 4 has been released. It can be downloaded here.
The Release Notes are here. In addition to bug fixes and stability improvements, this release introduces better compatibility with CGI and FastCGI applications by providing REQUEST_URI and SCRIPT_FILENAME variables, support for default-sun-web.xml, and certification of OpenSolaris 2008.11 as a supported platform.
All users of Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 through Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Update 3 and prior releases are encouraged to upgrade.

Today at OSCON Sun announced many things that I think are cool, but two of them have special value to me.
are open sourcing the core functionality of our Web Server (known
variously as Sun Java System Web Server, Sun ONE Web Server, iPlanet
Web Server, Netscape Enterprise Server) and our Web proxy Server (known
by the same various brands as our Web Server). The code will be under
the BSD license providing the maximum possible portability of the
project, and will bring Sun more fully into the open source HTTP
server community. This will happen on the OpenSolaris Web Stack
community sometime in CYQ3 2008.
- Sun will be offering
production support for the \*AMP stack on Solaris, OpenSolaris, and
various Linux flavors. The Sun Web Stack will be a product of the
OpenSolaris Web Stack community and a continuation of the work already
released as Cool Stack. Support wilol be available in CYQ3 2008.
Exciting times around the ol' Web Tier water dispenser.
