NOTE – 3rd July 2015 Breaking News

Standard Edition (SE) and Standard Edition One (SE1) are replaced by Standard Edition 2.

Customers running SE or SE1 will need to migrate their licenses to SE2 to be able to upgrade to Note 2027072.1

During last months the Standard Edition Community have often asked themselves:

“When will Standard Edition Database release 2 ( arrive?”

Yesterday I received a question from Laurent Leturgez , asking if I had any information about SE12.1.0.2:

Since I hadn’t, I asked the Database Product Manager at Oracle Dominic Giles,  and shortly the Standard Edition Community  received the information we all been waiting for:


The Standard Edition Database version (Rel2) is planned to arrive in Q3 CY2015! And Support extended 6 months

Thanks Dominic for assisting the Oracle Standard Edition Community during this time of uncertainty.

As Ludovico mentioned on one of his tweets, we absolutely need the twitter buzz around Standard Edition, but we also know the effect of “bad apples in the basket”.

So would it be more beneficial for Standard Edition Community to give the amazing team working on Oracle Standard Edition a break? I am sure Dominic will provide us with more facts when possible.

I liked the initiative from Franck asking for information on Standard Edition REL2 New Features. We need more initiative like this. Thanks Franck for supporting the Standard Edition Community!
