Historically, Sun stopped doing hardware updates on the install media 
when they stopped shipping new hardware with a given version preinstalled.

Browsing their site, near as I can tell, Oracle is only offering new 
systems with Solaris 11 pre-installed.  In that light it's not very 
surprising that there's been no revision to the install media.

(I'm sure Solaris 10 is still regularly updated, just not the media.)
