OpenIndiana is currently divided in two branches: one legacy release and one leading edge rolling-release.

Legacy a.k.a “151a”

This series is a direct descendant of the OpenSolaris project and is thus compatible with legacy installations.


This series is built using the oi-userland with GCC and consists in the unstable branch of OpenIndiana.

Our main goal is to integrate all software delivered with OpenIndiana into oi-userland build system, in place of the former software consolidations.

Migration of consolidations: the list of packages remaining for migration from X11 (XNV) and Desktop (JDS) consolidations can be consulted on the Wiki. If you would like to contribute, pick a component in the list and get started with building with oi-userland.

Other issues on the roadmap are (in no particular order):

Issues which are going to be solved until next snapshot:

  • move away from SunSSH to OpenSSH;
  • update Firefox; [PR#1540, PR#1617]
  • add VLC to hipster-encumbered; [PR#1616]
