Latest depends on your Operating System.

I would log into Oracle Support and check the Certification Matrix and available Patchsets for your specific OS.

I just found that it will be Oracle 12.1.0.2.0 for my windows x64 64 bit 2008 R2 server.

On which section of the Oracle Support i can download that version for upgrading ?

And what considerations when upgrading from 11.2.0.4.0  to the 12.1.0.2.0  ?

Since there isn't a patchset for Windows that I'm aware of, you can download it from here:
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/database12c-win64-download-2297732.html

>>And what considerations when upgrading from 11.2.0.4.0  to the 12.1.0.2.0  ?

Should be no different from upgrading any version of Oracle.  I would look through the docs for new features and deprecated/removed ones.

Focusing more on the features/functions no longer available...

I'm currently testing upgrades from 11.2.0.3 to 12.1.0.2 and haven't seem anything major as far as compatibility.  Your database might be using options and features that I do not.

Besides two normal databases on that server, there is an ASM database.

Any considerations for upgrading 11.2.0.4.0  ASM database to 12.1.0.2.0 ?

I've never used ASM but I cannot imagine there isn't a seamless upgrade path.

Maybe another Expert that has done an ASM upgrade to 12.1 will have more information later.

What will be the Oracle DOS command inventory to run for finding out everything that might installed about Oracle on the server ?

I don't believe there is one.  At least not easily.  You could write code to parse the inventory file or open it up and just look at it.  It is XML based.

To see what is installed in the Oracle Home, you typically just run the installer and look at installed products.

Then you need to see what each database may or may not have installed or be using.  Just because you have an option installed doesn't mean the database is using it.

There are queries for that.   Examples can be found here:
