OmniOS Release Notes

Bloody Release

The bloody release has unsigned packages, and is in flux FAR MORE than its stable or LTS peers.

The OmniOS release cycle explained.

Unless specifically noted, any interim (“weekly”) release may be applied via pkg update without a reboot. See the admin page for details on using pkg(1).

Major releases are really all that matter in terms of general support. Use pkg info on packages mentioned in weekly releases to see if you have the updated version.

To determine the major release your system is on, look at /etc/release
