There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around
That the APEX version 5 will become available.
I've jumped the gun before, but this message is taken direct from the apex.oracle.com site:
No doubt you've heard the news already, but I had to chuckle a little today as I did about an hour's work on a 3.2 environment. After playing with APEX 5 EA3, it was like jumping back into the 90's and using a 3.5" floppy.
APEX 5 will be an amazing leap forward in browser based development, but Joel suggests a few changes to be aware of.
Word on the street is APEX 5.1 will have a much shorter release cycle. This isn't the only post I've seen where Joel suggests more features will be just around the corner.
