Ah, thanks to both for the confirmation.
Coming from linux, I am used to just reboot for kernel updates.
And, since I cannot easily reboot, guess updates will have to wait...

last question, when I see "Boot Environment openindiana-10"; does that mean 
I have 10 full "updated environments", each a few GBs, waiting somewhere?
