10g Release 2 PL/SQL and SQL new features

I was browsing the Amis blog this evening and saw a post describing some of the new PL/SQL and SQL features in the upcoming Oracle 10g R2 database (tomorrow if we are to believe Niall's source). I talked about new features in 10gR2 found in Arup Nanda's paper the other day. I was interested to see Lucas's post as it talks about the same paper by Arup that I had already read. Lucas gives some good annotations and examples on the Error logging clause, Conditional PL/SQL compilation (This one is a great addition to the PL/SQL language), DBMS_OUTPUT restrictions finally removed and the standard way to search through XML. Good post.
