Oracle Data Provider for .NET Versioning Scheme

Starting with 10.2.0.2, Oracle Data Provider for .NET ships with two sets of binaries: one set for .NET Framework 1.x and another for .NET Framework 2.0 and higher.

For example, ODP.NET 11.1.0.6 binaries would be the following:

The convention for ODP.NET assembly/DLL versioning is

n1.o1o2.o3o4.o5

where:

For example, if the ODP.NET product version number is 11.1.0.6.0, the corresponding ODP.NET assembly versions are:

Note that the Oracle installer and documentation still refer to the ODP.NET product version number and not the assembly/DLL version number.

As with the .NET Framework system libraries, the first digit of the assembly version number indicates the version of the .NET Framework to use with an ODP.NET assembly.

Publisher Policy DLL is provided as before so that applications built with older version of ODP.NET are redirected to the newer ODP.NET assembly, even though the versioning scheme has changed.
