So the big things in the new refresh of 11.4 beta are the LDOMs 3.6 beta, OCI support, and the Spectre mitigations.

But as usual, there's some smaller things in as well: - LLVM/clang was updated from 3.8 to 6.0. - PPP & UUCP moved to the "legacy" package name space in preparation for removal in a later 11.x release. - sxadm(8) extension added for KADI (ADI in the kernel)

More in : - new compliance(8) "explain" subcommand to list and describe checks - Intel & AMD CPU microcode files split out of core kernel package for easier independent updates - immutable, nounlink, & appendonly file attributes in non-global native & labeled zones

Also new in this refresh: - GNU install is now /usr/bin/install to make FOSS builds easier (the old SVR4 install is still in /usr/sbin/install for those who need it) - /usr/bin/python2 & /usr/bin/python3 symlinks (from PEP 394) so scripts can specify a version

The new build also has: - svc:/system/coremon:cleanup clears corediag FMA alerts when the binary is updated - mdb ::findstack now lists all thread stacks if you don't specify one, & added a -p flag to walk process stacks from the kernel

Some changes are in the docs: - ssh-ldap-pubkey is now documented: - recv-multicast-scaling is now documented for ipadm: and a bunch of manpage cleanups & formatting fixes.

Wait what, /usr/bin/install does something sensible now!? Next you're going to say stash(1) is deprecated!
