Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 RC1 released
The Nexenta Project developers have issued the first release candidate (RC1) for version 3.0 of their Nexenta Core Platform (NCP). The hybrid distribution combines an OpenSolaris kernel with Ubuntu userland, integrating Solaris features like the ZFS file system.
The latest development milestone is based on OpenSolaris build 134+ (including critical patches) and addresses several bugs found in the previous release. 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. A second release candidate is expected to be released on the 1st of June.
More details about the release candidate can be found in the official announcement. Nexenta Core Platform 3.0 RC1 is available to download from the project's web site. The latest stable release of the Nexenta Core Platform is version 2.0 from May of last year.
