"We have currently installed 4.0.2.00.06 and I couldn't find any information about the upgrade from this version to 4.0.2.00.07. What are the changes? What should be installed (metalink patch or full install)?"
A customer had earlier pointed out how this new .07 version had silently been rolled out. I addressed it on the OTN forum, but to repeat it here:
There are two differences (bug fixes) between 4.0.2.00.06 and 4.0.2.00.07, namely:
- 10347091 - Page sentry function of custom auth scheme does not work in 4.0.2.00.06
- 10406645 - Expired Application Express password cannot be changed
These issues were discovered after the release of APEX 4.0.2.00.06 and I didn't think that the fixes for these warranted a "4.0.3". I knew I risked confusion for our customers, which appeared to have happened, but that may only be a result of poor communication on our part.
If you have APEX 4.0.0.00.46, 4.0.1.00.03 or 4.0.2.00.06 installed, you can download the patch set (p10173973_11202_GENERIC.zip) from My Oracle Support and apply it. If you don't have Application Express installed at all, then when you download Application Express 4.0, you'll automatically get 4.0.2.00.07.
