What is Continuous Delivery?
Continuous Delivery (CD) is a design practice used in software development to automate and improve the process of software delivery. The Continuous Delivery model will allow D2L to deliver updated technology to clients, enabling rapid, incremental delivery of high quality, valuable new functionality to users. This frictionless model also makes it possible to increase collaboration with clients and to adapt software in line with user feedback and needs, resulting in incremental and easily integrated changes.
How do I know my hotfix date?
When a hotfix is required, it will always be scheduled on your hotfix day. Your hotfix day is based on your Continuous Delivery (CD) update schedule. For example: If your hotfix day is Tuesday and the Fixed Issues List indicates 20.23.x hotfix (all), we will be scheduling a hotfix for all customers and your hotfix will be scheduled for the next, upcoming Tuesday.
Hotfix days adhere to the following schedule:
- Wave 3 Americas
- Wave 5 Americas (if your CD update is on Wednesday with 9:00PM start)
- Wave 3 and 4 APAC
- Wave 3 and 4 Europe
- Wave 4 Americas (if your CD update is on Thursday or Friday)
- Wave 5 Americas (if your CD update is on Wednesday with 6:00pm start)
- Wave 5 APAC
- Wave 5 Europe
- Wave 5 Americas (if your CD update is on Thursday or Friday)
In the event that a hotfix needs to be deployed sooner than your regular hotfix day, it is communicated through a Hotfix Notification email.
