I know it’s hard to believe that anything happened last week other than the implosion of Twitter, but APEX 22.2 was also released.
As normal, this resulted in a bunch of updates to my builds.
All relevant Vagrant builds were updated to include APEX 22.2. Many had been updated recently to bring them in line with the latest Oracle security patches. You can find the build here.
As with Vagrant, all the relevant Docker/Container builds have been updated to 22.2. You can find the build here.
If the release had been a couple of weeks earlier I would have been able to push it out during this quarters patching cycle. Unfortunately this release will now how to wait until the January 2023 patching cycle for me to push it out at work.
Our APEX upgrades/patches are automated (as mentioned here), so I could push this release out at the press of a button, but all the relevant teams would have to do their testing, and that probably isn’t going to happen until the next patching cycle, so it’s just going to wait until then. 🙁
Even if your work environment moves forward at a slower pace than you would like, it still makes sense to keep a test/play environment at the latest and greatest versions, so you can learn the new stuff and see what issues are coming round the corner for your applications.
All my home builds are now on APEX 22.2, running on the beta release of the Oracle Games Console (#OGC). 😉
