We are pleased to announce the GA of our new version: Toad for Oracle 14.2.104.
This version, the Toad for Oracle Base Edition, and two additional subscription offerings of Toad for Oracle Professional and Toad for Oracle Professional DB Admin are available for an affordable annual price. To learn more about these subscription offerings you can visit https://support.quest.com/toad-for-oracle .
For all of our existing customers, Toad for Oracle 14.2.104 contains many new fixes and enhancements (many of which have been suggested by our Toad World members—Thank you all!)
Oracle client version 18.104.22.168, 12.2.x, or 18.x is recommended for Toad 14.2.
Oracle client version 22.214.171.124 is incompatible with Toad 14.2. This will be fixed in version 15.1. Details here.
The Oracle 19c client works, but it has a memory leaks with LOBs so we don't recommend it. We believe the leak is Oracle's and not Toad's. The 19c server is fine. The problem is only with the client.
