Oracle BI Publisher 18.104.22.168.0 has been released this week. The links to download files, documentation and release notes are available from BI Publisher OTN home page. The download is also available from Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.
The new features in this release are primarily driven by the integrated Cloud Applications and Platform Services. Data Security, Self-Service, Robustness, Easier Integration and Cloud based Data & Delivery has been the main focus here. Check the new features guide available in the BI Publisher OTN home page for a quick glance at these new features.
Upgrading to Oracle Business Intelligence from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 is an in-place upgrade performed by Upgrade Assistant.
Migration of Oracle Business Intelligence from 11g to 188.8.131.52 is an out-of-place upgrade similar to 184.108.40.206 release, but now you do not need to separately migrate BI Publisher configuration as a post migration step and you can use Baseline Validation Tool to verify the upgraded BI Publisher reports.
Stay tuned for more information on the new features, upgrade and migration.
Have a nice day !
