IRIX® 6.5.10 Release
As of November 8, 2000 IRIX 6.5.10 is releasing with all new systems shipping from SGI worldwide manufacturing centers.
The IRIX 6.5.10 release contains updates for both the maintenance (6.5.10m) and feature (6.5.10f) streams. This release continues the focus on stability, reliability and compatibility required in the IRIX 6.5.X quarterly release process. Approximately 156 customer reported bugs are fixed in this release.
In addition to the bug fixes, the IRIX 6.5.10 maintenance path delivers several software enhancements and additional installation improvements. Since a major goal of the IRIX 6.5.X release process is to provide a feature stream as stable as the maintenance stream, the same bug fixes and software enhancements are also applied to the IRIX 6.5.10 feature path.
The general distribution process is through the online ordering system. IRIX 6.5.10m and 6.5.10f images are also available for download off Supportfolio.
