FAQ 296: Patch file process

Problem:

I've done the update as requested. However, I do have a question about the regular system patch file. Is there a patch update scheduled every Friday, or do I expect notification when one is due?


Solution:

We update the patch file on our website every Thursday night unless there have been no fixes to the system during the week. We do not send out an email about this unless there is some major problem that has been fixed. You can tell if the system patch file has been updated by the date on it. This file is cumulative, so if you miss a week you still get all the fixes from the previous week. There is a Readme file, also available for download, that tells what fixes have been made so you can see if they apply to your situation.
