Just read this on Slashdot:
Slashdot article

Couldn't find any information as to whether or not it does spatial, but people here might be interested anyway.

I would be very interested to see how it stacks up to PostGres (which IMHO is much better than MySQL). My experience with Oracle is that it is extremely powerful, but a full-time job to administer. I just want something that I can do some decent dynamic webmapping with.

My guess is that it doesn't include spatial, merely because they do mention a couple other extensions that are included.

Haven't gotten around to trying this myself, but I may do so if I have some spare time.
