OmniOS Community Edition releases r151022aj & r151024l are now available.

After 4 months of intense development, the OmniOS Community Edition Association is proud to announce the availability of the first Community release of OmniOS; version r151024. The release is on schedule ( coming 6 months after the final OmniTI release of OmniOS back in May.

This new release adds several key improvements to the lx-zones facility allowing for lightweight virtualization of GNU/Linux in an illumos environment, better zone resour...ce management, new hardware support and all the latest updates from upstream illumos; userland packages have also been brought right up-to-date.
