Oracle and SUN I just emerged, blinking, from the world of Skyrim, only to realise Sun Oracle has released the 11th version of Solaris (well, technically it's the 7th, but okay, we'll roll with it). I'll be honest and upfront about it: Solaris is totally out of my league, and as such, it's very hard for me to properly summarise what this release is all about, so I won't even try.

I wonder if they now would hold to their promise and release the source, so illumos and OpenIndiana could benefit from the latest improvements.

Finally a comment worth replying to. Yes, we will see and I'm hopeful Oracle will stand by its claim. This release also has implications on further zfs releases too. At least get zpool version 31 released so it can be imported to illumos.

Yes, potential ZFS release will also affect FreeBSD and etc.
