Goal

List of the single fixes included in Oracle Utilities Framework v4.1.0 Group Fixes and Service Packs.

A Group Fix is a regular scheduled fix (at the moment scheduled for every two months) which contains all the fixes for the product in one convienant installation.

This differs from service packs (which are still available) in a number of ways:
Service Packs are cumulative collections of fixes from the base release to the date the Service Pack is release. Group Fixes are only cumulative to the last Group Fix.
Service Packs are lots of individual installations done in the correct order. Group Fixes install all the fixes in one pass. Group Fixes take less time to install.

The advantage of the Group Fixes is that they are one installation, every release period, that keeps the software up to date rather than individual single fixes that may have prerequisites.

Implementation of Group Fixes will change the way single fixes are delivered. From the current version,  single fixes will only be released for critical patches only (as dictated by support policy) and all other fixes will be delivered as part of a scheduled Group Fix. This will make delivery of fixes and new functionality more predictable.
Please note: New functionality may be delivered as part of a Group Fix BUT the functionality is delivered such that it is backward compatible with past releases. In most cases, new functionality is delivered disabled so that you the customer can decide when to take advantage of the new functionality.
