Hi everybody,

My name is Gerald Venzl and I'm the new product manager for Oracle Database XE, which is being released again with the Oracle Database 18c release later this summer.

I would like to thank the great team here that has provided community support for XE over all these years and hopefully continue to do so going forward!

Along with the great team of community experts as well as Oracle employees I'm looking forward to help you getting the most out of Oracle Database!

Update: As we are going through extensive testing of 18c XE, we have found some issues in the latest Release Candidate that we consider being too severe for XE to be released prior to fixing them.

We want to make sure that XE has the highest possible quality and is a rock solid Oracle Database edition.

Because of that we have decided to delay the release of 18c XE until the October Release Update (18c RU4).

18c XE will be released as 18c RU4, instead of 18c RU3 as originally planned.

We apologize for the delay and hope for your understanding that better quality is worth the extra wait.
