All new fixes are publicly released in the upcoming cumulative update. Stand-alone fixes may be provided prior to the next cumulative update if the reported problem is critical, has significant business impact, and does not have a workaround. Stand-alone fixes (if provided) require the latest released cumulative update as a prerequisite.
