Project Indiana is working towards creating a binary distribution of an operating system built out of the OpenSolaris source code. The distribution is a point of integration for several current projects on OpenSolaris.org, including those to make the installation experience easier, to modernize the look and feel of OpenSolaris on the desktop, and to introduce a network-based package management system into Solaris.
The resulting distribution is a live-CD install image, and is fully permissible to be redistributed by anyone. It will also have the capability for developers to create their own, customized distribution based on Project Indiana.
Now the first preview version is available. This is an x86-based LiveCD install image, containing some new and emerging OpenSolaris technologies. This may result in instabilities that lead to system panics or data corruption.
Among the features contained in this release are:
- Single CD download, with LiveCD 'try before you install' capabilities
- Caiman installer, with significantly improved installation experience
- ZFS as the default filesystem
- Image packaging system, with capabilities to pull packages from network repositories
- GNU utilities in the default $PATH
- bash as the default shell
- GNOME 2.20 desktop environment
