Patch distribution

Tools and applications | Patch distribution
A patch is a set of changes to a computer program or its supporting data designed to update, fix, or improve it.[1] This includes fixing security vulnerabilities[1] and other bugs, with such patches usually being called bugfixes or bug fixes,[2][better source needed] and improving the usability or performance. Although meant to fix problems, poorly designed patches can sometimes introduce new problems (see software regressions). In some special cases updates may knowingly break the functionality or disable a device, for instance, by removing components for which the update provider is no longer licensed. Source:Wikipedia
