New ish:

rest enabled sql
rest enabled jdbc sql username/password@http://...(to ORDS)

+18.1 ORDS SQLDeveloper SQLCL modeller APEX
Oracle Linux 7 update5 (yum updated from 7u3 iso)

executables now under applications->other

readme.txt and readmeCopy.txt - the same - one sometimes gets half hidden in icon layout.

Same as last release + more recent software

Problem with java 8u161 with sqldeveloper on Linux. 8u152 being tried. Reports suggested javaFX related, and turn off splash/welcome screen helps. Turn off splash/welcome screen checkbox sometimes hidden but still works.

Try in the VM as oracle user
(Watch newlines and quotes, one line starting cd next line starting cp next line starting cat quotes are both simple single quotes (some editors/email/OS change them to prettier useless quotes). (The setting (to my limited knowledge) unsets a graphical optimization - i.e. no change to sqldeveloper java code))
cd ~
cp /home/oracle/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf /home/oracle/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf.SAV
cat /home/oracle/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf.SAV | sed 'sZsun.java2d.ddoffscreen=falseZsun.java2d.ddoffscreen=false\nAddVMOption -Dsun.java2d.xrender=falseZg' > /home/oracle/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf

About the icons - something like :

You need to cp the .desktop files to ~/Desktop

cp /home/oracle/.local/share/applications/*.desktop ~/Desktop

run the commands below

cd ~/Desktop

dbus-launch gio set "Rest Client.desktop" "metadata::trusted" yes
dbus-launch gio set "SQL Developer.desktop" "metadata::trusted" yes
dbus-launch gio set "Oracle-datamodeler.desktop" "metadata::trusted" yes
dbus-launch gio set "Click here to Start.desktop" "metadata::trusted" yes
dbus-launch gio set "sql.desktop" "metadata::trusted" yes

restart the VM sudo shutdown -r now
