Why do you think i don't like Opensolaris, it's the missing updates I don't like, have a look at the last reply :

Why is Firefox not updated ?


Because a large and complex project just can't spin on a 1 cent piece.

They are meant to receive security updates - so maybe you should do something constructive and ask on the OpenSolaris mailing lists as to why it hasn't been updated; simply posting on here achieves nothing at all.

"

Do you think it is good enough posting prattery on this website? ask them - for all you know the issue might have been mitigated and thus does not require an update. I am not 'in the know' so I can't say one way or another, but I don't jump to a conclusion when there could be a very reasonable explanation as to the decision they made.
