OpenIndiana is a continuation of the OpenSolaris operating
system. The project's latest release is 2021.04 which
includes updates for key desktop applications, development
tools, and hardware drivers. "We have updated firefox and
Thunderbird to newer ESR versions (78.10.0 resp. 78.9.1).
This was overdue and has been requested by many users.
Finally we have more than one NVIDIA driver version
available with nvidia-390.141 being the default. Changing
the driver to another version is documented. At the moment
we have the following versions in our repository:
nvidia-460.67, nvidia-390.141, nvidia-340.108. Our gcc-7,
gcc-8, gcc-9, and gcc-10 compilers have been patched to use
the illumos libc SSP implementation for -fstack-protector.
We have added openssl-1.1.1 and many packages have been
updated to make use of the newer and supported version of
openssl. Alas this process isn't finished yet as many
packages don't use it out-of-the box and a few even don't
work with its new interface. Work has been started to update
our Python versions and the related packages. As a
consequence we now have python-37 and python-39 packages.
This is also an ongoing process that hasn't been finished
