PunBB 1.3 hotfix system

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. When Administrator visits the forum, it periodically requests the information about new hotfixes from server. If a new hotfix is present, forum shows an alert (to the Administrator only). After that Administrator may visit hotfixes page1) and install new hotfix with one click. manifest.xml is being downloaded and installed as usual extension.

The hotfix system was originally designed by Rickard Andersson.
