  1. Morning Mike,

    it’s the day after, and no 18c on-prem in sight (edelivery, OTN). Any update/news you could share? Note 742060.1 is still unchanged…

    Thanks,
    Karsten

  2. Hi Mike,

    Doesn’t look like 18c download for on-premise has been released with July 2018 Release Update.
    Any ETA?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  3. Should have delayed the PSU. Now Oracle appears that it can’t deliver 18c on prem, even at the .3 release stage.

    • Chris,

      not in my hands. And there’s a simple reason for it.
      You may raise this to the appropriate people – but I’m just the upgrade guy πŸ˜‰

      Cheers,
      Mike

  4. Hi Mike,

  5. Hi mike,

    Could you able to explain me what are the new features available in 18.3.0 (on-premises) compare to 12.1.0.2.

    Thanks,
    Santhosh

  6. I think oracle 18c is not available for Windows OS. Is Oracle running away from Microsoft or planning to give support in future?

    • Sandip,

      no, not all all. Just before planned release in one of the final regression tests before sign-off, an issue was discovered. It got fixed. But this means that a good number of regression test suits need to be completed before we can publish it. I know, this is disappointing if one is waiting for the release. But it is better this way.

      Please be patient – and no worries, Win remains a very important platform.

      Cheers,
      Mike
