Please see the release notes for full details of what's new. This milestone also marks the one year anniversary of our first release. Look for our first stable release in the near future!

I concur with the previous comments about having kvm and zfs available in (open)solaris/illumos. I cringed when the xen/xvm development went stale after the Oracle acquisition. Looking forward to a stable solaris-based os with zfs + dtrace + kvm + zones! Thanks to Joyent for their work on the kvm port ( and their illumos-based smartos - http://smartos.org ). Only wished this kvm port supported amd cpu's, maybe in the future?
