The year 2018 just started and Oracle just released Solaris 11.4 Beta.
Only a few months after the media and social networks called Oracle Solaris dead, and if it was to them it would have been buried and gone by now.
Oracle drew the curtain on what was formerly known as Solaris 12. Oracle Solaris 11.4 is as mentioned by quite a few people (Oracle and non-Oracle) before not just another Solaris 11 release. It is new! Go grab the public beta version and find out yourself. The list of changes, improvements and new features is long.
I am in the privileged position that I have been using this for a couple of years now. I saw it grow, shrink, mutate and evolve. Glad it is finally available publicly.
A lot of people have worked very hard on this over the last couple of years.
And no matter where all of you are now or what you work on now, CONGRATULATIONS! Well done!
Update: After a forced offline time I will see check the blogs and get finally going with cool features and enhancements.
