New ECD Patch Release Policy and Guidelines

In April, EMC released new(?) guidance regarding their patching policies for ECD products.  You can read the document here.  In summary I don’t think this is a change in policy or scope from what has been in place for the past few years (that’s why I question the “new” in the first sentence).  The patch cadence is once a month for the core Documentum stack v7.1 and later, and quarterly for v7.0 and earlier, with hot fixes on an as needed basis.  Patches are cumulative and contain bug fixes and hot fixes.  The document contains a nice table that lays out the schedule for each product’s planned patches through the end of the year.  It’s worth a quick read.

About Scott
I have been implementing Documentum solutions since 1997. In 2005, I published a book about developing Documentum solutions for the Documentum Desktop Client (ISBN 0595339689). In 2010, I began this blog as a record of interesting and (hopefully) helpful bits of information related to Documentum, and as a creative outlet.
