Bug fixes for BASH (ASH for the rest of us) in version 8

Version 8 of BASH is available and fixes some bugs resulting in no data being flushed to BASH$HIST_ACTIVE_SESS_HISTORY. Again, thanks to Robert Ortel for reporting and tracking down the cause.

If you already have BASH installed, you can use the SQL*Plus update script update_v7tov8.sql.

  • Added missing trigger on BASH.BASH$SETTINGS
  • Renamed INST_ID to INSTANCE_NUMBER in views accessed through public synonyms
