On September 27, Oracle released Oracle WebLogic Server 188.8.131.52 as part of the overall Fusion Middleware 184.108.40.206 release. Downloads are available for developers here and for production purposes on Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. This is a patch set release for Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.X, delivered for maintenance purposes, incorporating functional and security bug fixes identified since the Oracle WebLogic Server 220.127.116.11 patch set release. We have deliberately limited new feature content between Oracle WebLogic Server 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 in the interest of simplifying adoption of Oracle WebLogic Server 126.96.36.199 by existing Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.1.X customers. See the What’s New documentation for detailed new feature capabilities in 188.8.131.52. In general, new feature capabilities are being targeted to the Oracle WebLogic Server 14.1.1 new version release.
It is important to note that Oracle WebLogic Server 184.108.40.206 has been designated as a Long Term Support (LTS) patch set release, formerly known as a terminal patch set release, for WLS 12.2.1.X. This means that error correction – new patches and Patch Set Updates (PSUs) – will be provided for Oracle WebLogic Server 220.127.116.11 for the remainder of support lifecycle as published in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Lifetime Support Policy – look for “Oracle WebLogic Server 12.2.X” – and as documented in My Oracle Support Document 950131.1. Customers adopting Oracle WebLogic Server 18.104.22.168 will be able to leverage 22.214.171.124 as their production deployment platform for many years to come. We recommend that 12.2.1.X users plan on adopting 126.96.36.199 for this reason. Customers running on Oracle WebLogic 10.3.6 or 12.1.3 should also consider the remaining support lifecycle for these versions and consider planning to upgrade to Oracle WebLogic Server 188.8.131.52.
