Description

I've been using the direct "Add Oracle Spatial Layer" feature and created a few connections.

I've just discovered that "Add vector layer" has a "database" radiobutton. If I click this and select "Oracle Spatial", none of my Oracle connections are listed. This confused me for a bit but I've now realised/discovered this is the "old" way to connect to Oracle Spatial (I never used it). It may be worth making it clear this is deprecated otherwise some users may think this is the native connection (I did).
