OS Release: OpenIndiana 2020.04

  • OpenIndiana is a community project which maintains a continuation of OpenSolaris. The project’s latest release, OpenIndiana Hipster 2020.04, migrates from Python 2 to Python 3 and upgrades the compiler to the GNU Compiler Collection 7. The release announcement reports: “We have released a new OpenIndiana Hipster snapshot 2020.04. The noticeable changes: all remaining OpenIndiana-specific applications have been ported from Python 2.7 to 3.5, including Caiman (slim_source) installer; installation images no longer ship Python 2.7, however some software can still depend on it; GCC 7 is now used as the main system compiler; LibreOffice 6.4 has been added. PKG has been updated to use rapidjson instead of simplejson for json processing which reduced memory consumption on operations with large package catalogues; many packages have been updated; VirtualBox has been updated to version 6.1.6 - there are some issues with direct and VNC consoles with non-EFI guests; VLC has been updated to 3.0.1; ntfsprogs has been updated to 2017.3.23AR.5; 32-bit versions of basic X.Org tools have been dropped; hplip has been updated to 3.19.12…” Further details can be found in the release notes.
