FYI I've been requesting this patch since the certificate expired in March. However oracle still maintain that this is not yet released - "as I updated a few days ago the CP10 not released yet." They maintain that this patch is only for testing at the moment.

Hello, I checked again on Oracle's website and as of 5:50pm Eastern on Monday, May 16, 2011 the status of this cumulative patch is General. This means it is available for general release and usage.

I did notice that someone has posted an issue with CP10 and needed to roll back to CP9

At last I have an update;

"According to the last discussion with the BDE team, a few NLS (locale Japanese) problems are preventing the final release of CP10."

And a bit of detail on persisting we needed to use it;
1. Plus is always geting launched in English irrespective of localy (Japanese) chosen
2. Excel export hangs when a workbook name has a leading spaces

hope this helps others.
