Solaris 10 1/06 (aka Update 1) is out!!

It's here at last! After nearly a year of hardwork, all of the teams pulled together an excellent update for Solaris 10. It feels great to finally get the release out to the masses. In addition to many bug fixes, there are loads of performance enhancements and new features. Solaris 10 1/06 supports all of the new hardware platforms released over the last year, including the Niagra Cool Threads machines and the galaxy boxes.

This release contains the metaslot support for the Solaris Cryptographic Framework which makes programming to the framework easier than ever before, new GLD interface and updated network drivers to take advantage of the performance gains, and GRUB for x64 boot architecture. There's so much more, too. Check it out - let me know what you think! Visit the downloads section of

Now I should finally be able to get some sleep :-)
