New Features in Solaris Express 8/05

This section describes all features that are new or have been enhanced in the Solaris Express 8/05 release.

Set SMTP to Use Transport Layer Security

This security enhancement is new in the Solaris Express 8/05 release.

The Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) can use Transport Layer Security (TLS) in version 8.13 of sendmail. When enabled, this service to SMTP servers and clients provides private, authenticated communications over the Internet, as well as protection from eavesdroppers and attackers.

For more information, see the System Administration Guide: Network Services.

Driver for IEEE-1394 Based (IIDC) Digital Camera

This driver is new in the Solaris Express 8/05 release.

This driver enables support of IEEE-1394 based (IIDC) digital cameras. By supporting a software interface for camera control and image capture, the driver also enables development of applications that attach to these devices. This driver supports devices that implement the 1.04 version of the 1394 Trade Association 1394-based Digital Camera Specification. Support also covers devices that are backwards compatible.

Refer to the dcam1394(7D) man page for more information.

SCSI HBA Driver for LSI MegaRAID 320-2x SCSI RAID Controller

This driver is new in the Solaris Express 8/05 release.

This release introduces the lsimega driver. The LSI 320-2x card is supported by lsimega with back-end support from LSI. 2. Sun FireTM V20z/V40z servers with the optional 320-2x RAID card receive better support for RAID disk I/O and pass through I/O for SCSI tape and CDROM 3.

For further information, see the lsimega(7D) man page.


This driver is new in the Solaris Express 8/05 release.

This release delivers a userland device driver for USB CCID-compliant smart card readers. This feature uses the USB CCID IFD Handler that is part of the MUSCLE project. With this feature integrated into Solaris, customers can now use a wide variety of USB smart card readers on Solaris systems that have USB ports.

For further information, see the usb_ccid_ifd(3SMARTCARD) man page.
