any news on that question? Support of Oracle 11g Express Edition is already integrated in my program. Everything works fine. The higher DB limit of 11 GB is great! However, I cannot deploy because there is no release version of Oracle 11g Express Edition.

They jumped the gun in the magazine
"By the time you read this, Oracle Database, Express Edition 11g will be available for download as a production release."
So I don't think the intention is to wait for OpenWorld. They might have been waiting for this quarter's CPU if there was something there which needed to be included. Or there may be some last minute wording for the licence ?
Almost a week later, and still no change to the Express Edition download page. There must be some last minute bugs to fix.
At least 11gR2 XE fixes the problem (that exists with 10gR2 XE) on Windows where starting the Oracle XE service does not open the database.
Edit: that Oracle newsletter has been edited. It now says: "Oracle Database, Express Edition 11g is now available for download as a beta release, +and the production release is imminent+."
