At first read this makes it sound like the “Solaris 12 cancelled” news was wrong, and all that’s happening is that it’s moving to a different release model. They even try to forestall the read that this will be a bugfix/maintenance only release model by saying “we plan to release new innovations into Oracle Solaris 11 in an ongoing manner”, i.e. that it will be under active feature development as well as maintenance. But much of the Solaris team was nonetheless apparently laid off, which would suggest the opposite?

I don’t have the authority to either deny or confirm this rumor, but I must say that even in those crappy articles about the demise of Solaris, they never mentioned laying off the Solaris team; they mentioned other teams.
