For this release, we concentrated on KILLING BUGs. And we were very successful, closing over 300 items between core ORDS features, SQL Developer Web, and the Data Tools features unique/exclusive to Autonomous Database subscribers.
Here are some things you’ll want to mind for 23.4:
- we’re no longer shipping the release notes with the product downloads/archives
- while we fixed 301 bugs, we’re only listing the relevant items as far as customers are concerned
- some of the bug fixes bordered on being enhanced or new features
- ORDS 23.4 in process of being rolled out to our Oracle Cloud Autonomous Database fleet, now
If you have ORDS configured correctly, you can see now a card to launch the Graphiql application for running GraphQL queries.
And, in the matters of those bug fixes, I’m going to spotlight two of those items, one that you will care about, and one that I care about.
Support for complex types in SQL Developer Web
26624888 SDW XML TYPE DATA SHOW AS NULL ON GRID
And a trivial thing, Clear Screen works now
I use this all the time, and it was bugging me. If it was bugging you too, now it’s fixed.
SDW - SQL Worksheet now supports the “clear screen” statement, in SQL scripts.
