Sun introduced the Software Express program to provide customers with prerelease software on a regularly scheduled basis. This is especially useful for software developers who must port their applications to Solaris Express and for system administrators who support such environments. The Software Express program is also beneficial to early adopters who wish to examine and test system functionality and new features.

Click on the URL below to learn how the program works, and many more features, including using the Community web site, what's new in Solaris Express, installation, upgrades and more.

The press is starting to take notice of the next release of Solaris. The Register put up a piece overviewing some of the highlights on the next release today. eCommerce Times has a piece, so does CRN. Looks like this release is going to get alot more PR than previous releases, especially with all the IP questions that make releasing any UNIX OS look like a bold move, at least to the mainstream press.
