Yes, that bug is fixed with that hotfix as well. I am sorry for the inconvenience, but it seems that the developers forgot to add it into the hotfix instructions.

The installer file is as it was released - with no hotfixes. It is because hotfixes are optional and are not fully tested as the released version. In hotfix are tested only fixed bugs. There is no whole round of testing everything. To date, there were one or two minor issues with hotfix package (new bug in the hotfix), no major issues (e.g. that the system crashed or similar).

Best regards,
Juraj Ondrus

There was a bug in the initial release of v5.5 where the "NodeHeadTags" was not set to NULL on some documents (It was set to "blank"). Is that fix included in this release? Does applying the fix revert the blank fields to NULL?

Going forward, is this hotfix (and others) included in the v5.5 download so we don't have to upgrade from v4.1 to v5.5 and then apply the hotfixes?
