Oracle APEX is a no-cost option for Oracle Database and has two major releases each year covered under the Oracle Database maintenance agreement. Each release receives 1.5 years of support. Instead of individual patch releases, Oracle provides cumulative Patch Set Bundles, which require a “My Oracle Support” account for download. The latest patches can be re-applied to the current installation, and announcements for new patches are made on APEX’s X account. For details on bug fixes for the current release, visit the Known Issues page.

Support timeframes for versions < 19.1 are available in the Lifetime Support Policy: Oracle Technology Products (PDF). The Roadmap reveals planned features and explains release plans and naming convention.

More information is available on the Oracle APEX website.
