This is a small, but really useful quality of life feature!
The stars of today’s video are the offspring of Jeff Smith. It was cold, dark and miserable when I recorded the video, and this is one of my favourite clips, so I included it to bring a touch a summer! 🙂
Unless you live under a rock, you’ll have seen APEX 21.2 was released yesterday. Being the worlds worst APEX developer, I’m not going to speak about the new release, as I’ll just embarrass myself, but I did want to give a heads-up of what I’ve been doing since the release.
A number of my Vagrant database builds include APEX. Those that do have been updated to use APEX 21.2. You can find them here.
It’s taken a long time for us to roll out APEX 21.1 at work. Most of that delay is because of competing priorities. We’ve been pushing the Oracle 19c database upgrades hard, and it’s not left much space to focus on APEX. The last of our production systems will be upgraded to APEX 21.1 next week, so I’m not sure how eager people will be when I start pushing 21.2. 🙂 I’ll try, but it might have to wait until next quarter’s security patching. We’ll see.
Despite that, APEX 21.1 is now dead to me. Long live APEX 21.2. 🙂
If you’ve got some spare time, you might want to listen to us chatting about a variety of subjects including the Oracle community, how we got started in content creation, YouTube and our attitude to Oracle 21c.
