After a long (but I’m sure well worth it) wait, Oracle just announced APEX 5.1 Early Adopter is available.
Head over to https://apexea.oracle.com/ to sign up and request a Workspace.
The two big items everyone has been waiting for are
- Interactive Grids
- Jet Charts
but reading through the “Additional Features in Application Express 5.1” section on the EA homepage it looks like there are lots of other interesting improvements and enhancements.
