Applying feature packs or fix packs
Feature packs and fix packs are interim product releases that provide minor enhancements, bug fixes, or both.
A fix pack resolves problems that were discovered after the release of the current version and can include hot fixes that were delivered since the previous fix pack or feature pack.
In addition to the resolved issues that you might find in a fix pack, a feature pack can contain minor enhancements to the product.
The feature pack or fix pack installation process requires you to complete your preparatory activities before starting the installation tasks. The installation flow diagram and the process table enable you to apply the feature pack or fix pack smoothly.
