Oracle BI Publisher 184.108.40.206.0 was GA on May 19th and you can get the download, documentation, certification matrix and release notes here at the BI Publisher home page in OTN. Here is a quick snapshot of new features in this release. The download is also available at Oracle Software Delivery Cloud site. The documentation page has also been given a fresh new structure where in the left navigation you will notice "Task" and "Books" as two menu items. The task will provide quick reference to role based activities under different sub menu items such as "View & Publish", "Design Reports" etc. The "Books" menu will take you to the complete set of books. You can select Administrator's guide, or Developer's guide, Data Modelling Guide, Report Designer's guide and User's Guide for BI Publisher here. If you are looking for any feature, and do not find information under "Tasks" then check for the same under "Books" or use the search option.
Stay tuned for more updates on new features. Wish you have a good time exploring the new features!!
