In 2018, with the release of Pega 8.1, we announced our shift from hotfixes to Patch Releases. The patch release program approach allows us to bundle, test, & release bug and security fixes over a given period into a cumulative patch that will be made available to all clients. This new process provides value to your business through improved overall quality and better dependency management. Look for a new cumulative patch release to be made available every month.
