Hotfix is a lightweight extension consisting of single
manifest.xml file. It's aimed to fix some bug or group of similar bugs. Hotfixes are cooked by PunBB development team. A forum periodically requests the information about new hotfixes from
http://punbb.informer.com/ server. If a new hotfix is present, forum shows an alert (to administrators only). After that the administrator can visit hotfixes page1) and install the new hotfix with one click.
manifest.xml is being automatically downloaded and installed as usual extension.
The hotfix system was originally designed by Rickard Andersson.
