Compatible parameter

My databases are version 10.2.0.4.x, but some of them still have
compatible set to 10.2.0.3.0.  I want to know what restricted features
will become available if I raise the value of compatible.

The following is probably from version 7, but I have not found a similar
view in Oracle 10:

Type ID  Release      Updated      Description
-------- ------------ ------------ -----------------------------------
BOOTSTRP 7.0.10.0.0   7.0.12.0.0   bootstrap$
COMPATSG 7.0.11.0.0   7.0.12.0.0   Compatibility segment
DATAFILE 7.0.11.0.0                Data file structure
KCBCICT  7.1.5.0.0                 Cache cross-instance protocol
LOGSTRUC 7.2.0.0.0                 Log structure
TRUNCFIX 7.2.0.0.0                 truncate bug fix
CONTROLF 7.3.0.0.0                 Control file
RCVREDO  7.3.0.0.0                 Recovery redo
REDODATA 7.3.0.0.0                 Redo contents
TEMPTS   7.3.0.0.0    7.3.0.0.0    Temporary tablespace
TRUNCNT  7.3.0.0.0    7.3.0.0.0    truncation count
UNDODATA 7.3.0.0.0    7.3.0.0.0    Undo contents
UNLMTEXT 7.3.0.0.0    7.3.0.0.0    unlimited extents


DISLOCK  0.0.0.0.0                 Alter Table Disable Table Lock
FORCEVSN 0.0.0.0.0                 Force undo/redo versions to exist
HASHEXP  0.0.0.0.0                 Hash expressions in hash clusters
IMPHSHFN 0.0.0.0.0                 Improved hash function
KDIBIX   0.0.0.0.0                 bitmap indexes
KDINFB   0.0.0.0.0                 index support for freelist groups
LOCKING  0.0.0.0.0                 Instance locking protocol
MULTTRIG 0.0.0.0.0                 Multiple Triggers Per Type
RDONLYTS 0.0.0.0.0                 Read only tablespace
REDOORDR 0.0.0.0.0                 Redo order by SCN
RESZDAFL 0.0.0.0.0                 Resizable data files
REUSEBRB 0.0.0.0.0                 reuse index branch blocks
UPDSNAP  0.0.0.0.0                 Updatable Snapshots

I am quite sure that it was generated using the following SQL:

col type_id     format a8       head 'Type ID'
col release     format a12      head 'Release'
col description format a40      head 'Description'      word
col updated     format a12      head 'Updated'          word
col implemented noprint

break on implemented skip 2

spool compatib.rep

select decode (c.release, '0.0.0.0.0', '2,', '1') implemented,
       c.type_id, c.release, s.updated, c.description
from   v$compatibility c,
       v$compatseg s
where  c.type_id = s.type_id (+)
and    c.release = s.release (+)
order by decode (c.release, '0.0.0.0.0', '2,', '1'),
         c.release, c.type_id, s.updated
/

Can someone point me to similar information in Oracle 10?

Thanks,

Sarah
