  1. Hi Laurent,
    I was @ CERN the other day and talked to the guy in charge for the beta testing with 10.2.0.4 patch.
    And I have seen the patch in demos @ OOW.
    Oracle VP Leng Leng Tan had even said that it would be out public the week after OOW, which was obviousely not the case.
    I will let you know as soon as I know more.

  2. Very interesting about 10.2.0.4, At several UKOUG events in the past few months the support update from an Oracle employee has mentioned that 10.2.0.4 would be out by the end of this year.

    I also find it interesting that the workload capture will be available with 10.2.0.4, I wonder if this is causing the delay, in that this is clearly adding new functionality rather than fixing bugs, which is what I thought a patchset was meant to do!

  3. Hi Jason,
    yes, this would be new functionality made visible to us TEST BUNNIES which was there already.
    The thing is more that this would add more value to 11g since it does not really make sense to be able to run a test workload only in the same release for testing. I think that 11g is not selling as they had hoped for and that it is a trailing fix to make it more attractive. I would not be surprised if they would even try to extend it to even older releases. There are a lot of customers who would love to know what happens if they migrate from 9i to 11g I think.

  4. I raised a TAR with Oracle at the beginning of December about 10.2.0.4 availability on HP-UX Itanium and I got the following reply:

    Unfortuantely, We have no official informations about release date of 10.2.0.4 .
    10.2.0.4 for HP Itanium is expected out end of MARCH 2008 , But i advice to recontact Support on January for confirmation.
