The Workbench 2018-03 will be delayed for a short while.
I'm currently busy working to get up my freelance career.
SFE packages continues to get you valuable software, no changes here.

In the meantime feel free to drop me a line and tell me what you need / think about SFE.

Regards,
Thomas

(Update 20160107 - There is a fresh verison 5.2.4.2 in the IPS repository and the term "testing" is faiding out)

Hey brave Solaris 11 users,

if you are keen enough, you may try out Libreoffice 5.2.3.3 now.
This is a completely untested package from the developing development development repository.

YoutTube HTML5 Testpage showing all video formats okay

Recently released SRU14 for Solaris 11 gets us Firefox version 45.4!

You can install ffmpeg/libavcodec.so and watch video / mp4 and more formats in Firefox 45.4.
Or you could listen to soundcloud ...

Sidenote: OpenIndiana Hipster are lucky too, they have Firefox 45.4 since a few months.
