Oracle pledges annual Solaris updates for you to install each summer



From the 1st para of Oracle blog:

"On January 30, 2018, we released the Oracle Solaris 11.4 Open Beta. It has been a quite successful."

Spot the grammatical error staring at you like the proverbial dog's 'nads. I'd say that gives a pretty good indicator about how much Oracle 'cares'.

Further down:

"Some new features in this release are:


* ZFS Scheduled Scrub


Bleeding edge stuff: a shell script and cron job.

From a FreeBSD 11.1 box's /etc/default/periodic.conf (which was probably committed years ago) :


daily_scrub_zfs_pools="" # empty string selects all pools

daily_scrub_zfs_default_threshold="35" # days between scrubs

#daily_scrub_zfs_${poolname}_threshold="35" # pool specific threshold

Also no mention of a Solaris 12 which kind of confirms it's zombie status.

Somebody mentioned Oracle's Solaris "team". I'm not entirely sure 'one old bloke with Alzheimers' constitutes a "team".
