Solaris 11 Continuous Delivery Model

Solaris 11 adopts Continuous Delivery model, which means instead of Solaris 12 there will be Solaris 11.4, 11.5, etc. This is generally a good thing - quicker adoption of new features as most software certified for Solaris 11 should stay certified for the new dot releases, etc. This is also similar to what Microsoft did with Windows.

Oracle also extended Solaris 11 support to 2031.
