Eclipse 3.5 M7 introduced a small gem in the Eclipse Platform: Solaris x86 has joined the lineup of supported configurations for which SWT and Eclipse are routinely built.

Although there always ways the option of Solipse, it is better to have the official platform vendorsupport your configurations. The change does make OpenSolaris a more attractive development platform, and I’m more inclined than ever to make the switch.

And here’s a bug report to Increase visibility of Solaris x86 builds on Eclipse.org, as I feel they should be better represented.

And for the lazy amongst us, here’s a direct download link for the Solaris x86 Eclipse SDK.
