Sun Web Stack 1.4 released for Solaris 10, RedHat RHEL5

By Alasdair Lumsden on 23 Dec 2008

Jyri Virkki has announced the release of Sun Web Stack 1.4 which you can download here. You can also get involved via their forum and read the lovely wiki based documentation.

It includes the following package sets, and what looks like MySQL 5.0 rather than 5.1 (sensible move given the poor reception of 5.1!):

It was only just released and I haven’t yet tried it, but this appears to replace Sun Coolstack 1.3.1 and will be the new format moving forward. I will no doubt have to post new blog entries on compiling mcrypt for it!
