Patches and Documentation

Describes important considerations for patches and patch documentation.

Whenever possible, keep your software up to date by applying the latest patches available on the MapR Support Portal. This practice can help you to resolve issues and minimize downtime.

Some patches enable new features or behaviors that are described in the documentation. However, the MapR documentation does not typically include patch numbers or identify the features or behaviors that are delivered by specific patches. If you see a fix or feature in the documentation that is not available on your platform, you might need to apply a patch in order to use the fix or feature.

To understand which patches apply to your platform, contact your MapR support representative, or visit the MapR Support notices of known issues. For information about applying a patch, see Applying a Patch.
