You also don’t get a ton of time benefit of RU support with 18. If you are
already 12.2, if time allows, I’d wait for 19.

If you are using Goldengate, you must also upgrade that to 18, earlier
versions will not work. Not sure if that’s mentioned in the video.

18.1 is said to be the same release as what would have been called 18.104.22.168.
It is just that they switched the naming convention in there.

Possibly foolish question, but at some point Oracle claimed the quarterly
patches were going to change the version numbers of database instances.
Did anyone run into problems upgrading from 12.2 to 18.3 or 18.4? Or is
18c just 12c with a different versioning style (YY instead of version
number because they didn't want to use 13).
If 18 and 19 are just 12c with a different name, it's tempting to just move
to 18c as it it was a patch.
(I know it would be like going from 12.1. to 12.2 etc.)
