My colleague Vamsi Chikkam noticed that the Oracle 10.2.0.3 patchset has been released for Linux and Windows 32-bit. The major bugfixes are the same as my original post with a few additions:
- Identical SQL run in different schemas may modify the wrong schema’s tables (bug 5458753)… we have run into this problem at a client site and it’s not pretty. Workarounds include qualifying schema names in SQL and one-off patches for 10.2.0.2. MetaLink note 329673.1 has more details.
- When cursors are being reloaded frequently in the shared pool, PLS-306/ORA-1722/ORA-1858 errors can occur (bug 4752541)
- Under Windows platforms, triggers referencing :NEW/:OLD using NCHAR/NVARCHAR character sets can error out (bug 5388136)
- The same issue as bug 5388136 above also causes compilation errors on 10.2.0.2 databases upgraded from previous releases under Windows(bug 5383828)
