Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris Sun Microsystems has delayed the release of two major features the company has trumpeted as reasons to try its latest version of the Solaris operating system. Eric Schrock, a Solaris kernel programmer, said on his blog in April that he's "completely redesigning the ZFS commands from the ground up" after finding some deficiencies.

I'm annoyed as the next person, and I'm kinda annoyed at Sun...but if you read the article carefuly, they do say that it will be available via Solaris Express sometime this year.

I'm hoping it'll be in the next few months, as these two features are some of the most attractive features of Sol10 for me - ZFS mainly for the coolness factor (somehow I doubt I'll come into a 10Tb disk pool anytime soon *grin*), and Janus, for actually being useful.

*fingers crossed* (if any Sun people read this, could they provide a rough idea of which SolExp build it'll be?)
