"Every six months, Sun updates its Solaris 10 operating system to include bug fixes as well as feature updates. That continues to be the case, even though it's likely to be the last release before Sun (NASDAQ: JAVA) becomes acquired by Oracle.

"Today, the company officially released the Solaris 10 5/09 release, providing new Intel hardware support, IPsec (define) security features as well as network performance improvements. The update also comes as Sun is working on its next version of Solaris in the OpenSolaris community.

"Despite the fact that Sun is expected to be absorbed into Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) later this year as part of a $7.4 billion acquisition, it's business as usual for the powers behind Solaris."
