Database 11g release date confusion

Derek Kuhr Derek Kuhr Profile: Derek Kuhr

For weeks now everyone has been reporting that July 11 was to be the launch date for Oracle Database 11g. That’s the impression I was under as I went forward with the reporting for our new Oracle Database 11g Special Report. But alas, the big Oracle event in New York was more of a Database 11g preview and introduction, rather than a product rollout. Now we’re told that the new release won’t be available for at least another month. And then only for the Linux platform.

Looks like I wasn’t the only who was highly confused by Oracle’s messaging around the so called “Database 11g Launch.” Tim at Oracle-Base blog apparently was too. He wrote:

“So all the pomp and ceremony is over and Oracle 11g is launched, but as yet I’ve not heard anything about a release date. Does anyone know when it is likely to hit the shelves. I kind-of [thought] that was the big news, but as yet I’ve not seen any press releases or blog entries that specify a date. It’s not available for download on OTN yet, so I’m assuming the “Launch” and the “Release” are not the same thing.”

 Well, Tim, I hope my little blog entry here clears up some of the confusion out there.
