POSIX aio was not *removed* for 2.5, rather it never was present.

There's only Solaris 2.x aio (aioread/aiowrite) just like there was in
SunOS 4.x.

Solaris 2.6 does have POSIX AIO.

Are you sure it was ever *in*? I found it for the first time in 2.5.
AFAIK, it will be in 2.6 (at least the 2.6 rumours page says so:

PMJI,

Is there any chance that Posix AIO will be removed before 2.6 ships?
I too need this.   Can you comment on what other parts of Posix
1003.1b (ie. Posix Realtime extentions) are in Solaris 2.6?  I hope
your answer is "all of it" :-)

BTW, any rumors of a DevPak '97 (x86)?

Nothing is certain until freeze date, which I believe is about two months
before ship date. Assuming a ship in June (this is what I heard recently),
it means you don't need to ask before April...

Have a look at this webpage for rumors:
        http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/solaris/versions/solaris/2.6.html
About POSIX it says:
        POSIX standards support added: 1003.1b real-time support, POSIX
        Async I/O, POSIX.4 message passing

1. In search of Solaris 2.5 Netscape Navigator 3.0 plug ins

I am searching for plugins for Netscape Navigator on a SPARC Solaris 2.5
system.  While any help would be appreciated, I am especially looking for
plugs for RealAudio, wav, and Shockwave files.

Surely I don't have to go out and buy an IBM PC running windows or a
just to be able to access sites which use these technologies.
