We would like to discontinue support for IDV on Solaris SPARC. At
Unidata, our very old Solaris SPARC machines will be end-of-lifed
shortly. After the retirement of those machines, we will not be able to
create an IDV JRE distribution for Solaris SPARC. Moreover, these SPARC
machines tend to be server machines not typically used for client-side
To be clear, this decision will not affect Solaris x86/x64 IDV users.
That operating system will continue to be supported as usual.
Please give us feedback if this decision affects you.
