We're happy to inform you that our first Release Update (RU) for Oracle Enterprise Manager 13.4 is now available for download! You can download the Release Updates from My Oracle Support: Patches & Updates.
Release Updates (or "RU" for short) are a way for us to deliver new EM features and bug fixes to you more quickly, without waiting for a major release vehicle (such as EM 13.x) to deliver them. In the past you might have heard of these referred to as "Bundle Patches (BPs)" or "Plug-In (PG)" releases, such as "EM 13.3 PG" or "EM 13.3 BP1." Release Updates may contain any or all of Oracle Management Server (OMS) patches, OMS-side Plug-In patches, Agent patches and Agent-Side Plug-In patches. As your environments change more and more quickly, we will be using regular, ongoing RUs to deliver the management capabilities so that you can ensure your EM environment has the latest and greatest functionality EM has to offer. We hope to make these Release Updates available on approximately a monthly basis.
This particular Release Update is referred to as "Enterprise Manager 13.4, Release Update 1" (or "EM 13.4 RU1" for short).
