A commenter on this blog, Ben, shared how to get the final WebLogic 10.3.6 patch for Hyperion / Oracle EPM 188.8.131.52. We may download this patch without needing to get a password from Oracle Support. The patch number is:
You need to be on an active Oracle Support contract for your EPM 184.108.40.206 in order to access the patch.
Ben also indicated we may pull up an Oracle Knowledge Base article that lists the final patches for various components of the EPM 220.127.116.11 suite. The KB # is:

3.3.22 Oracle Hyperion Infrastructure Technology
If your 18.104.22.168 environment includes Essbase, we can expect more Essbase 22.214.171.124 patches to come out in 2022, because (for now) EPM 11.2.x uses Essbase 126.96.36.199 under the covers.
As of EPM 188.8.131.52, Essbase 12c is still not certified for Hyperion Planning. Once an 11.2.x comes out that certifies Essbase 12c for Planning, I'll take a closer look at it.
As per the 184.108.40.206 README, EPM 11.2.x patches are expected to be released Quarterly according to this rough schedule (Oracle Corporation's Safe Harbor applies here): January, April, July, and October.
On Oracle's EPM 11.2 documentation hub, click "Essbase" on the left-hand side. Among other things, we are explicitly told to use Essbase 220.127.116.11:
"Use Essbase 18.104.22.168, which is compatible with Enterprise Performance Management Release 11.2.x"
Consult the 22.214.171.124 Install+Config Guide for more information about using Essbase 12c in an EPM 11.2.5+ environment.
Many of you are on PTO this week, so you might not notice this post until early 2022.
Have a Happy New Year!
