  1. Thanks, Robert — this is great (and promising) news and very relevant for my organization and its coming mandate for entreprise-wide Windows 8.1. Is the “Windows 8 support” all-inclusive — meaning, does it include W8.1 support? Many thanks and much appreciated!

    1. I’m sorry Mike, they do not list 8.1. I think it has to do with the IE11 standard on Win 8.1. Since is only compatible with IE10, they cannot certify Win 8.1 since Microsoft does not allow Win 8.1 to run IE10.

      Although there is a Compatibility Mode, Oracle stated at KScope that they are only going to support the base release of IE, not the Compatibility Mode varieties. It’s just too much extra code to manage and as IE releases slow down, Compatibility Mode is slated to go away.
