September 2023 version of AutoUpgrade is available

It’s time again – and the new September 2023 version of AutoUpgrade is available for download to you.

Where to download it?

As usual, the MOS Note: 2485457.1 offers you access to the new release, and to the previous versions of the tool as well. This new version will show the following version information:

java -jar autoupgrade.jar -version

build.version 23.4.230921 2023/09/21 14:43:05 -0400
build.hash 165be072
build.hash_date 2023/09/21 13:05:52 -0400
build.supported_target_versions 12.2,18,19,21
build.type production
build.label (HEAD, tag: v23.4, origin/stable_devel, stable_devel)

This version will be also included in the Jan 2024 RU, 19.22.0, but not in the October 2023 one due to code freeze constraints. For you, this means you should update the AutoUpgrade tool in ?/rdbms/admin in your current and new homes please.
