New Solaris PatchFinder tool

Anyone who has ever used the existing Solaris patch search tool will know how limited it is. Well Sun have released a much improved search page called Software Update Finder. Gerry Haskins has detailed blog about its new capabilities which include:
  • Filtering results by OS release and architecture.
  • Limiting search results to Security and/or Recommended patches.
  • Searching for patches that fix a particular CR or BugId.
See Gerry's article for more features. This is just the initial release and there are plans to enhance it further in the future. Let Sun know what you want the tool to do.
