    BIRCH now available for Solaris/AMD64
    Submitted by Brian Fristensky; posted on Tuesday, January 03, 2006


    BIRCH Release A1.96

    BIRCH now supports the Solaris/AMD64 platform.

    With the latest release, binaries for most BIRCH
    core programs are now available for Sun's Solaris/AMD64
    machines. In mixed platform environments, BIRCH users
    can now run most BIRCH applications transparently with
    respect to whether they are logged into a Linux-Intel,
    Solaris-Sparc or Solaris-AMD64 host.


    The latest release of BIRCH (A1.96) is available at the
    BIRCH Web site

    under the link 'BIRCH Administrator's Guide'.
