The SQL Developer Exchange , http://sqldeveloper.oracle.com, has been out there almost since the beginning of the tool. It's our way to allow users to log requests and have other vote on them. Then we each release pick off some and put them into the product. It's been basically unchanged since day 1. This week I've built a new set of screens which hopefully look better and are easier to use. We have implemented over 400 requests from users. The exchange is have a bit of a facelift and if anyone would like to test out the new Exchange go here https://apex.oracle.com/pls/apex/f?p=43135:1 . This is the same tables and data underpinnings so if you log or rate a request it will show in both place.
