Release of PeopleTools 8.50 September 19, 2009

Posted by Duncan in PeopleTools, Strategy.

It’s been a long, long time coming, but PeopleTools 8.50 has been released!

There were a couple of docs floating around that listed 18th Sept as the release date, but no official confirmation from Oracle, so I wasn’t 100% sure that it was coming.  Further details here:


Rather intriguingly not only is there this release (which is the biggest in the PeopleSoft world for a good year or so) but also a new release of the Oracle Database, and a hardware tie-in with Sun in the last few days.  Why are these being released now, with OpenWorld so close?  Is there something even bigger that is going to be unveiled during OpenWorld?

the Oracle games machine!

Not the Fusion Middleware MP3 player? Or the 11gPhone? Or the Service-Orientated BluRay player? 🙂

On a more serious note, Tools patch 8.50.01 is out already.

Figures … I just finished a platform migration to Windows Server 2008 64-bit and upgraded to Tools 8.49 at the same time. Looking forward to checking this out, though!

It’s still a good thing you’ve done. You’re on a supported version of PeopleTools, and even if 8.50 was available a little earlier you’d probably have let it ‘mature’ a little before jumping to it wouldn’t you?

Oh, absolutely. At least we’ve done the hard work of moving onto a 64-bit OS and SQL Server 2008, etc. etc. I just hate that feeling that we were cutting edge for three weeks and now we’re out-of-date already. 😉

I did notice that the new Tools and Tuxedo/WebLogic still seem to be 32-bit, even though they’ve removed support for 32-bit server OSes. I thought everything was supposed to be native x64 for this new release.
