Patch Set For Oracle Database Server

Update: Mon Sep 13 16:02:36 PDT 2010
The patch is now available for download (for real). If you downloaded it on Friday, there is no need to re-download it. It was mistakenly made public before it could be validated (test MD5 sums, etc.), but has since been validated. Enjoy!

Just a quick post that the patch set for Oracle Database Server has been released for x86 and x86-64 platforms. The patchset number is 10098816 and is available for download from My Oracle Support.

Be sure to give note 1189783.1 Important Changes to Oracle Database Patch Sets Starting With a read as several things have changed in the patching process.

    it’s actually not a rumor. the patchset was available and i downloaded the whole 4-5 gigs. some hours later the download was password-protected and soon after that the patchset was gone.
    either releasing the patchset was an accident (happens sometimes) or they found some last minute bugs. i applied the patch on one of my test systems and the upgrade worked quite well. but i will definetely not put the thing into production now :)

    If that is the case then it has been put back. I downloaded the Oracle Database for Windows this morning from MyOracleSupport and using the patchset number 10098816.

    Hi Greg,

    We were surprised to know that the interconnect multicast is a mandatory requirement. Leaving that aside, what is new with optimizer or performance measuring tools?

    I was told that tkprof is changed little bit.
