Description

Hi All,

richlowe and I have been working on getting oi_151a ready for shipping. We are mostly there and have a reproducible distro-import that produces what seem like correct results. I've tested upgrading a few zones and a fresh install of oi_148 in VirtualBox and things went well. We're going to churn out an iso and check to see what's broken there, hopefully not much. So we're very close to release.

I think it would be very fitting to release oi_151a in ten days on our first anniversary - 14th September. For this date, we should aim to have everything in place that we need, including some decent release notes.

pkg5 has been updated to quote this URL for the release notes:

I think it's worth mentioning KVM, which is obviously big news, and the switch to Illumos. So we should trawl the illumos commit history and find some gems worth talking about. Some initial ones I can think of:

New terminal definitions:
