    We have 6 years with DilOS! :)

    2.0.1 version has been released.

    It is first Intel release has been done by one compiler - gcc-6.4.0

    For upgrade to latest version you need to do:
    apt update && apt install -y os-upgrade && os-upgrade -y

    New version will be installed to new BE and you can reboot to new version.

    Or you can download ISO/USB/PXE:

    We use Debian technology.
    We try to port Debian userland apps with original Debian configurations in files.
    Unfortunataly, it is not possible for all components right now.
    As result it will take more work on services (SMF).
    Also needs to work on pre-/post- scripts for using under our ZFS boot environment specific and zones.

    As Debian technology and ports of apps from Debian userland, we can use some packages for 'all' platforms as is.
    Such as: for Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, NodeJS, etc.
    They are packages in non-binary mode

    This release has been moved to use GRUB1, becausse new loader from illumos tree has several issues with loads if some usb sticks presents/inserted to servers and it was failed with loads as bhyve VM.
    It is possible to use loader, but need a prepare boot iso/usb images and fix installer to use loader.
    it can be requested by email or on IRC: #dilos

    DilOS 2.0 beta1 has been released!

    we have 5 years with DilOS! :)

    It is first release with new scheme: move to use original Debian style packages and builds.

    not at all fixed yet - it was big transition time - and still in progress.

    what news with this and next releases:
    - gcc 6.4.0 64bit as primary compiler for userland builds on Intel and SPARC
    Intel: illumos build by gcc 5.x 64bit because we can see issues with dtrace + ctf in kernel side with gcc 6.x builds - have to investiagte or try to wait (maybe illumos community will fix it  :) )
    SPARC: illumos build still with gcc 4,x because have to work on transitions of Sun AS -> GNU AS for sparc sources.
    - more 64bits builds
    - moved illumos tools to /system/bin/ and use original coreutils and GNU tools in primary place.
    illumos tools have ACL support and if you need it - try to use tools from /system/bin/
    with GNU tools in original PATH it helps with ports of Debian userland applications with autotools
    - some illumos userland tools have been replaced to versions from Debian upstream: cron, exim4(instead of sendmail), etc
    - LX zones: have been tested with CentOS and Ubuntu distibutions.
    - possible to setup ipkg zones with OI(OpenIndiana) and smartos with pkgsrc.
    - and many others updates

    Right now we are using Debian stable release 9.x (Stretch) as mainstream.
    The new system has been tested in different virtual environments such as kvm(+virtioblk +vioif), vmware(+vmxten3s +pvscsi +open-vm-tools), virtualbox and zones.

    Plans:
    - continue to sync updates from illumos + illumos-joyent
    - continue support SPARC builds
    - to go forward with new scheme and try to move to use original userland builds (Debian style) as is - have to fix build dependencies and some build tools.
    - ports/updates many userland apps
    - try to look to Xen 4,x port (when all build dependencies will be ported)

    Personally, i’m inetersted in server side, but if you are intereted in desktop - you are welcome with ports of userland apps for it or sponsors of others for it :)

    You can try doanload and install DilOS 2.0 and provide your feedback (https://bitbucket.org/dilos/site/downloads/).
