UKOUG Apps15 is the must attend event for Oracle Apps professionals, with over 120 sessions there is something to suit everyone.
My session will take place on Wednesday, 9th from 10:00-10:50 and is entitled
"50 Shades of #Fail - OBI worst practices in real life"
I look forward seeing you at Apps15!
OBIEE 126.96.36.199 went GA yesterday and is available for download on OTN here.
Oracle Documentation for 188.8.131.52 is here.

First post is from Andy Rocha over at RittmanMead and concerns LTSs and outer join pruning:
