Like all software, IBM® Business Process Manager (BPM) is constantly improving. Every so often IBM “rolls up” (consolidates) all fixes into a new fourth digit fix pack or third digit modification release. These releases typically contain many critical fixes.
To avoid experiencing a serious issue that a fix was made available for in the last, say, 10 or 12 months, have a regular plan for updating your IBM BPM software within its current release. For example, you might have a plan that checks for the latest service level every six months and schedules an upgrade if one is available. If a new fix pack or modification release is not available at that time, you can apply the latest recommended fixes for your release instead. You can search for the list of fixes that IBM recommends for a given release on Fix Central.
Applicable editions: Express, Standard, and Advanced
