I was not aware Oracle had a C compiler implementation?

Nope, never bothered. C++ is most definitely not on as a OO language, no point in wasting time with it. If I wanted to use a OOL, C++ would be my last choice.

It hasn't changed much except for optimisations to do with the client-side cache and so on. And that's a good thing, IMHO. Doesn't mean one should not upgrade past 10g, if nothing else to get the latest on the db. If it doesn't cause compatibility problems with current applications, I'm all for it.
