The Sun Ray Software product team is pleased to announce the Sun Ray 
Software 5 Early Access 1 (EA1) program. It begins today, 7/8/09, at 
12:00 pm PT and it will end on 7/31/09.

The focus of this program is on three core new features:

1) Adobe Flash Enhancements
Sun Ray Software 5 provides Adobe Flash enhancements which enable 
customers to experience improved frame rates along with synchronized 
audio, video, and Adobe Flash animation playback for the Sun Ray 2 
family of clients and its follow-on product family.

Supported environment:
o Internet Explorer 7 and 8
o Adobe Flash 9 content with all Adobe Flash plugins from versions 9 & 10
o Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit) and Windows XP SP3 (32-bit)

Users will need both components of Sun Ray Software - Sun Ray Server 
Software & the Sun Ray Connector for Windows OS. In additional to the 
Windows environment mentioned above, users need to install Sun Ray 
Server Software which runs on the following platforms:
o Solaris 10 5/09 or higher on SPARC and X86
o SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 Service Pack 2 (32-bit and 64-bit)
o Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 Update 3 (32-bit and 64-bit)

2) Windows Server 2008
Sun Ray Software 5 enables customers to display applications within 
Windows Server 2008 in 32 bit color. Windows Server 2008 Session 
Directory support is also included.

Supported platforms:
o Solaris 10 5/09 or higher (SPARC and X86)
o SuSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 10 Service Pack 2 (32-bit and 64-bit)
o Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 Update 3 (32-bit and 64-bit)

3) Sun Ray Soft Client:
The Sun Ray Soft Client is a software application that easily installs 
on common client operating systems and provides the ability to connect 
to a Sun Ray server and initiate a Sun Ray desktop session from a 
Windows laptop or desktop computer. An alternative to using a Sun Ray 
hardware client (DTU), the Sun Ray Soft Client meets the needs of 
end-users who do not fit the desktop thin client model or may need to 
connect from their existing laptop or desktop PC. The Sun Ray Soft 
Client also provides the flexibility to 'hotdesk' to and from your Sun 
Ray thin client and any supported Sun Ray Soft Client enabled PC.

Supported platforms:
o Microsoft Windows XP
o Microsoft Windows Vista
o Microsoft Windows 7
