Patchset 10.2.0.4 for Windows x64 is finally released

I don’t know what caused a delay in Patchset release for windows x64, considering that 32-bit version was released two months ago! I sincerely hope that Oracle will not announce 10.2.0.4 as a terminal release – they “owe” us at least 10.2.0.5 (if not 10.2.0.6), with so many bugs shipped with initial 10g R2. In addition, most Oracle shops will wait for 11g R2 before they’ll start upgrading core production systems, imho another patchset would be appropriate.

  1. 10.2.0.4 Patch 2…
    I was curious if Oracle released any patches on top of 10.2.0.4 in the last two months… (see Metalink note 342443.1, “10.2.0.x Oracle Database and Networking Patches for Microsoft Platforms”), sure enough, they released Patch 7006942 with additional 60 bug fixes for 10.2.0.4 – but only for 32-bit version). Anyway, I believe it’s a good thing to check the list of bugs listed in post-patchset released Patches (of course, in addition to “Known Issues” Metalink notes for each patchset!).
