I’m pleased to announce that APEX 4.2.5 has been released. Since the dev team has been largely focused on all of the really exciting new features in APEX 5.0, this release is largely a bug-fix release–except for the packaged applications. We made some significant changes.
There are two new applications–Live Poll (Survey Builder’s little brother, for when you don’t need all the big statistical bells and whistles) and Sample Geolocation Showcase (which shows how to use Oracle’s eLocation system).
We’ve also modified many of the existing packaged applications; the two which were most extensively tweaked are P-Track, which now includes the ability to define custom fields for projects, action items, and milestones, and the Application Standards Tracker, which I’ve blogged about here. The changes to Standards Tracker are extensive (and exciting) enough that I’m going to devote an entire post to them; look for that soon.
