Oracle Enterprise Performance Management 188.8.131.52 became available over the weekend, so let the rush of upgrading begin!
Here at Applied OLAP, we have already started our work with Essbase 184.108.40.206. We have added the new version to our build list and have started testing Dodeca with Essbase 220.127.116.11. We will make the 18.104.22.168 version of our server available to our customers within a few days.
One interesting fix that we have seen so far is that EPM 22.214.171.124 uses an upgraded version of Java, Java 1.6 update 35. The previous EPM version, 126.96.36.199, shipped with Java 1.6 update 29 which contained a bug related to the SQL Server JDBC Driver. The issue, known as the BEAST vulnerability, caused SQL Server JDBC connections to hang unless you made a fix to the Windows registry. I, for one, am glad that issue is resolved.
