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 just saying that Janus was probably slated to be released with the GA earlier this year, but prioritization probably caused it to be delayed. Talented engineers are a scare commodity, and if a lot are already working on other enormous features, not everything is going to pan out exactly as planned. IMO, it's less likely to have show-stopper technical problems with something like Janus as with ZFS--perhaps they underestimated the volume of work to get all the details right?
