Hi All, On behalf of the Nexenta project, I'd like to announce the availability of the Nexenta Core Platform 3.0. You can download the latest iso image from http://www.nexenta.org/projects/site/wiki/DownloadStable This is the same iso as the RC3 release. --- The near future: NCP 3.9 The move to NCP 4.0 will be in 2 phases. The first immediate change would be to move from OpenSolaris b134 to a recent Illumos build. With this the Nexenta project will change it's base from OpenSolaris to Illumos. If you're unaware of Illumos, it is a branch of OpenSolaris ON gate, with closed bits replaced with open code. More information at http://www.illumos.org --- The mid-term future: NCP 4.0 Once we've moved to Illumos as the base, the second phase is the move from Ubuntu Hardy as our userland base to either newer Debian or Ubuntu release. This is still being discussed, and we're currently addressing some of the legal challenges with the effort. There will shortly be some discussion on the NCP mailing lists about this, and we welcome the community's participation. --- Note, you can use the SUN_PERSONALITY variable to get the original OpenSolaris userland rather than GNU, if you so prefer. With that, enjoy the NCP3 release! Regards -- The Nexenta Team.
