Just a little post to ask if anyone has a list of new features yet. I'm annoyed that I don't have the beta software, I'm usually given it because of my work for Oracle Press, but not for 12c so far. Anyway, these are the features I happen to know of:

You can put the password file on ASM
Raw devices not supported
Pluggable databases (see the latest blog article)
Session statistics for GTTs

Anyone know of any more? Perhaps spmeone who was at Openworld?

Most notable, handy features found on other databases:

* Pagination queries (LIMIT clause).
* Use a sequence as a DEFAULT column value.
* Identity columns.

There are lots of cool features as well. Some that got my attention:

* RMAN Point-In-Time Recovery on TABLE level (cool!)
* Data pump can turn off redo for the import operation (no need to shut down & disable archiving before imports).
* Adaptive execution plans (execution plan can change in the middle of the execution, OK?)
* Hot data will be compressed for faster access (heat maps).
* Increased size limit for data types.
* IPv6 client connectivity.
Etc.

CASCADE option on TRUNCATE (from Connor McDonald's Oracle blog)

T. Kyte presentation.

DBMS_UTILITY.EXPAND_SQL_TEXT (similar to the undocumented 11.2.0.3 dbms_sql2.expand_sql_text, see J. Lewis blog)

The oracle-base blog:
Day 2
Day 4
Day 5

I like the function that can be defined in WITH clause of SELECT statement, above all when you don't want to give CREATE PROCEDURE privilege to common user or when you work on a read-only database (in short every time you canot or don't want to create a (permanent) function).

Regards
Michel

Tim Hall's ORACLE-BASE

I like:
- Track direct privileges and privileges via roles being used, so you can determine the least privileges needed. Monitoring controlled using DBMS_PRIVILEGE_CAPTURE. Report what is used and what is not used.
- A PL/SQL unit can have roles granted to it.
- Invokers rights for views.

Regards
Michel

I have to lock this topic, because I've been accepted for the beta program and I can't take the chance of appearing to break the non-disclosure agreement. Sad

All these information are available on the web, so I can't see how you could appear to break your agreement otherwise Connor McDonald, Tim Hall and Jonathan Lewis (the links I posted) should also be prosecuted and I doubt Oracle will do that. Smile

Fair enough. I just don't want to take any chances, which is now documented.

ps - like the new avatar, Michel.

In webcast TOM described 12 features (PL/SQL function in SQL, top n query, varchar2 size..etc) newly introduced in SQL.
And over 500 features they have added in this release.

And others described about security, downtime, auditing and 'C' in Oracle 12c.
I am excited to know more about those features.

Regards,
Manu

This webinar I recorded the other day includes what I think you mean by "top n query": the row limit clause.
