Default OpenIndiana Hipster 2017.04 is here

We have released a new OpenIndiana Hipster snapshot 2017.04. The noticeable changes:

Support for USB 3.0 devices was integrated.
Intel KMS port was reworked and should work on most Intel GPUs.
Xorg server was updated to 1.18.4.
Mate was updated to 1.16.
A lot of end user applications are delivered now as 64-bit only.
We introduced ca-certificates service to regenerate the CA bundle.

Release Notes

A warning, the only file system offered during installation is zfs. You will need to have a fair amount of memory in a x86_64 system for this to run reasonably well.
