Hi Laurence and Chris,
Support for Oracle and MySQL is planned for implementation after the official release in January.
The task will be scheduled for either Q1(ending in April) or Q2(ending in July) of 2011.More details will be announced in March.
The hold up right now is that we do not have mappings for Oracle and MySQL. Our mappings are optimized and support SQL only. That said you will not be able to run a SF 4.0 website on Oracle if you don't use the project manager.
What we are planning to do is is rewrite our mappings using the Fluent Mapping API of the latest version of OpenAccess. All databases supported by OpenAccess will be supported by Sitefinity as well after that.
I hope that answered your question.
