Update 29 November 2016 Added dates of end of error correction support.

Update 12 December 2016 Added dates of end of error correction support for 12.2.

Update 09 May 2017 All versions and patches are up to date.

Recently I started to spend significantly more time at OTN forums. And what I have realised that often people don't understand how old versions of the software they use are. It's pretty typical to use OBIEE 11.1.1.6.x or even 11.1.1.5. Well, I knew this before, but when you can see tens of questions it makes the situation more obvious. I'm going to maintain a list of OBIEE versions with release dates in this post, so it's easy to say how old the given release is. I'm not going to say that I remember all of these dates.

I spent some googling them and for the older releases it's just an estimate: the earliest mention I found (10.1.3.4.2) or a date of a documentation (10.1.3.2), etc. So for the oldest releases this dates may be not completely accurate, but as these releases are 5-7 years old I don't think that's a big problem.

Disclaimer #1: this information is completely unofficial. It may contain errors and should be only used as an overview. Refer to https://support.oracle.com for the official information.

Disclaimer #2: I will do my best to keep this info actual, but I'm not an Oracle employee responsible for this, therefore I can be wrong, can forget to update it, etc. Refer to https://support.oracle.com for the latest official information.

Disclaimer #3: I haven't found official error correction support dates for OBIEE 12c, therefore these dates are very rough and should not be used for making any decisions. Refer to https://support.oracle.com for the latest official information.

And some visualization to make it more obvious:

Note: PS. If you can't see the chart, it's possible that it was blocked by ABP (or its analogue). I'm trying to figure out why it does so, but right now the only solution I know is to switch it off for this site.
