Oracle and SUN Today Oracle released its latest version of Solaris technology, the Oracle Solaris 11 Express 2010.11 release. It includes a large number of new features not found in either Oracle Solaris 10 or previous OpenSolaris releases including ZFS encryption and deduplication, network-based packaging and provisioning systems, network virtualization, optimized I/O for NUMA platforms and optimized platform support including support for Intel's latest Nehalem and SPARC T3. In addition, Oracle Solaris 10 support is available from within a container/zone so migration of existing systems is greatly simplified. The release is available under a variety of licenses including a supported commercial license on a wide variety of x86 and SPARC platforms.

I hope OpenIndiana/Ilumos switch to HammerFS. I also hope that Illumos abandons the OpenSolaris DDK and switch to a port of IOKIT for easier development and sharing of knowledge with OSX users. Personally I wished for a port of XNU open source parts to Illumos with filling missing bits with OpenSolaris.
