OpenIndiana 2020.04 Released

OpenIndiana OpenIndiana

Another release of OpenIndiana has just been published earlier this month, with some further improvements:

  • All OpenIndiana system software was rewritten in Python 3. Installation images now don’t deliver Python 2.7 interpreters or libraries, however some software still requires Python 2.7.

  • GCC compilers were updated to 7.5.0, 8.4, 9.3. GCC 7 is the default oi-userland compiler now.

  • Latest illumos-gate bits (45de87).

  • A lot of other bug fixes and minor software updates are included.

Will make it a focus to get the OpenIndiana VM going on my desktop this month - I really miss Solaris and would really like to see what it’s up to
