Oracle have made a press release about the database 10g release 2 announcement

I was surfing over at Niall's weblog this morning and read his entry about Oracle Open World and the keynote speech about 10g R2 being released early next year. Niall talks interestingly about the fact that Oracle will be the first database to ship on Windows that supports writing stored procedures in CLR languages rather than Microsoft being first to ship.

The other interesting line for me was the link to the press release for the launch of the Oracle database 10g Release 2 - The press release gives some details of the new features. As I said yesterday the interesting things for me are the new seamless encryption / decryption and the direct memory access for statistics and also some of the high availability features. Again the press release is here.
