History of JDeveloper Releases

From time to time I'm asked about when certain releases of JDeveloper appeared. I figured I'd document them on this blog so I had something to point people to in the future.

A brief history of JDeveloper releases appears below. Some of the older releases can still be downloaded from the JDeveloper Archives page on OTN.
