Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 Beta 1 arrives
The Nexenta Project developers have announced the availability of the first beta for version 3.0 of their Nexenta Core Platform (NCP) – the sixth development release in the NCP 3.0 cycle. The hybrid distribution combines an OpenSolaris kernel with Ubuntu userland, integrating Solaris features like the ZFS file system.
The latest development release is based on OpenSolaris build 134+ (including critical patches) and includes a number of bug fixes for the previous alpha release. Other changes include updates to Nexenta-on-source and the addition of the COMSTAR Vtape package in the repository. As with all development releases, use in production environments and on mission critical systems is not advised. Users testing the release are encouraged to report any bugs that they find.
More details about the release can be found in the release announcement. Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 Beta 1 is available to download as an ISO image file from the project's web site. The latest stable release of the Nexenta Core Platform is version 2.0 from May of last year.
