Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 now available

As an early Christmas present / late Hanukkah present, Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 is now released and available for download.  If you wish to download the full release of Oracle Application Express 4.2.4, you can get it from the Downloads page on OTN.  If you have Oracle Application Express 4.2, 4.2.1, 4.2.2, or 4.2.3 already installed, then you need to download the APEX 4.2.4 patch set from My Oracle Support.  Look up patch number 17607802.

As is stated in the patch set note that accompanies the Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 patch set:
  • If you have Oracle Application Express release 4.2, 4.2.1, 4.2.2 or 4.2.3 installed, download the Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 patch set from My Oracle Support and apply it.  Remember - patch number 17607802.
  • If you have Oracle Application Express release 4.1.1 or earlier installed (including Oracle HTML DB release 1.5), download and install the entire Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 release from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
  • If you do not have Oracle Application Express installed, download and install the entire Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 release from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN).
As usual, there are a large number of issues corrected in the Application Express 4.2.4 patch set.  You can see the full list in the patch set note.

Some changes in the the Oracle Application Express 4.2.4 patch set:
  1. Large number of bug fixes and administrative UI enhancements to almost all of the Packaged Applications.
  2. A new packaged application - Standards Tracker.  This was the idea and creation of David Gale, who used this application to help manage the standards across all of the other packaged applications delivered with Oracle Application Express.
  3. Numerous bug fixes in the underlying Application Express engine.

Rats, David's site is down right now. It's driven by Apex (I think?), so maybe he's installing the patch set?

Hi Stew,

Thanks. I'm aware of the issues of David's blog (the risk I took by including a link to it). He said it's actually a function of the hosting provider he's using.
