mostly what they'll support


10g will support older software, 11g won't   - check oracle support site (support.oracle.com)  for exact version compatibility matrix

11g will also support client side result caching.

is there something more specific you're looking for?

should be fine.


of course, if you try to use something 11g specific that 10g doesn't know about you could have problems.
for instance,  trying to use 10g exp  on 11g db, is legal, but you can't use that dump file to reliably import into another 11g db
