3 product releases from Oracle Dec 2013

So far this December Oracle has released version upgrades for three of their products:
  1. Joel Kallman announced Oracle APEX 4.2.4 is now available. It appears to be mainly fixes & enhancements to Package Applications, so maybe it's time to give them all a go & see if they may be useful to you. [bugs fixed]

    I'd also like to revisit a few and see if templates have been made out of some of their cooler dynamic PL/SQL regions. I've reverse engineered their hover functionality using a template & a list, but it would be nice to have these available in themes.

    Bring on APEX5
  2. Jeff Smith gave use 10 reasons to upgrade to SQL Developer 4.0. I haven't used it much so far, but it seems many of the hiccups from the early adopter downloads have been addressed - plus a gazillion new features.
  3. At the start of the month Jeff also announced Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler 4.0 is available.
Do good things come in threes? No, they do not, but in this case we have a correlated co-incidence that we should certainly take advantage of ;-)
