UTL_ENCODE.BASE64_ENCODE APPENDING ONLY LF AND MISSING CR IN THE LAST LINE IN 12.2 ONWARDS.

Applies to:PL/SQL - Version 22.214.171.124 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
While using function UTL_ENCODE.BASE64_ENCODE (rawBuffer), function has been automatically appended a CRLF every 64 characters, even on the last line returned by the function. If the line did not contain 64 characters, an LF was appended.
From 12.2 onwards, it seems that CR is missing in the last line, meaning that only one LF is appended, even if the function returns 64 characters.
Upgraded to 12.2 from 12.1.
