    Phoronix: Well, It Looks Like Oracle Fails At OpenSolaris In 1H

    Once upon a time the successor to OpenSolaris 2009.06 was supposed to be OpenSolaris 2010.02 and then it became OpenSolaris 2010.03 with a release date in March and then who knows what happened. There hasn't been an update to the OpenSolaris operating system now in a year nor has there been any communication at all to developers or end-users by Oracle about their plans after taking over Sun Microsystems. All indications were that Oracle would at least deliver an OpenSolaris update in 2010'1H, but it looks like that won't happen...

    Or MySQL, which is more or less a direct competitor to their main business.

    H is the 8th letter, so they obviously mean 2010."8th" = 2010.August.

    Obviously

    Though the dev repo has stopped being updated due to the iminant release. Source code has continued to be released as normal (now at b142+).

    Goto blastwave.org for docs on upgrading b134 to b142.
