Does Mathematica 5 use multiple processors on SPARC?

I assume this technical FAQ http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/allplatforms/multipleprocessors.html is out of date since it says "The current version of Mathematica does not take direct advantage of multiple processors on any platform" whereas http://www.wolfram.com/products/mathematica/newin5/performance/ says "Mathematica 5 also takes advantage of multiple processors for a range of numerical operations on those operating systems such as Linux, Windows, and HP-UX that support this multithreaded capability." Now my question is does Mathematica 5 support multiple processors on Solaris? Since the kernel code is very similar across platforms, I assume it does, although it is odd to mention HP-UX and not Solaris, when the latter is probably used much more.
