After a great holiday season, its time to get back to the grindstone. We released SQL Developer 1.5.3 before Christmas which is our first translated release. Its just japanese right now and we'll be extending that to nine languages in 1.5.4.
The other major part of 1.5.4 I want to sweep up are as many issues as possible from our customers on the forums. Over the next few weeks, we'll be focusing on locking down as many of these as possible.
In terms of conferences, I'm off to Moscow in February as part of the series of Oracle Develop conferences. I'll be doing a couple of sessions on SQL Developer and hope to get under the covers to show exactly how you can build your own additions to it. I was watching Sue present at UKOUG and it was the one thing that struck me that people were looking for as heads were bobbing around the room.
