As always, we are proud to deliver to you latest illumos-gate bits (i.e. illumos-f83b46b).

There's also a lot of security fixes and small bug fixes.

As for missing things, we would like to update to lastest latest Xorg, but we still miss radeon driver for it.
More updates to X11 libraries are coming, as well as PHP 7.0.5.

I'd like to mention that all JDS components, present in /dev, were moved to oi-userland. As for oi-userland itself, its tools are switched to python 2.7. Components are moving to categories according to categories layout. Logic for publishing renamed/obsolete packages was imported from upstream userland-gate.
