   BeleniX 0.7 provides a highly usable KDE3 environment on OpenSolaris today.
   With 0.7 BeleniX is now essentially a source-level derivative of
Project Indiana.
   As such it will be syncing with the OpenSolaris releases quite closely at the
   source base. For eg. 0.7.1 due in a month will mostly sync with OpenSolaris
   2008.05 (though with a later ON build).

   There is a plan to move to KDE4 by 0.8. Due to a variety of reasons it was
   decided to use KDE + Gcc for BeleniX at present. SUN Studio will however be
   looked at in the future.
