      Because there were repeated questions on this topic in the beta forum for XE 11.2 and similar questions come up here, I think it is a good idea to summarize the different requests and the announced release plan for each operating system. I'll try to keep this post updated as any new information is published.

      I'd appreciate if this thread would not be used for any discussion on if or why some port will (not) be available. Please either follow the threads referenced above or, if anybody think it's necessary, start a new one.

      Thanks and enjoy XE 11.2,
