By Mike Dietrich-Oracle on Oct 17, 2015
Friday, Oct 16, 2015, Oracle announced that the Extended Support for Oracle Database 220.127.116.11 will be waived until May 31, 2017. After this period of Waived Extendend Support, Extended Support for Oracle Database 18.104.22.168 will be offered until end of December 2020.

Exceptions - For customers with a current support contract running:

Sustaining Support column cut off as it is always infinite for these releases. Please note as well that I have cut off a footnote pointing to MOS Note 742060.1 describing in more details that the above periods apply to the terminal release patch levels (for instance Oracle 22.214.171.124) only.
Something to mention:
- There's no bug fixing support for Oracle Database 126.96.36.199 or below available anymore
- If you'll compare the effort to upgrade to Oracle Database 188.8.131.52 to Oracle 184.108.40.206 you'll have to do the exact same amount of work. tests etc - no difference
- UPDATE [Oct 20, 2015]
Now MOS Note:742060.1 has updated as well but only the text, not the graphic yet. Usually this will take another few extra days as the owner of the Note is not in charge of the graph's creation. Please be patient
