I've been keeping you all abreast of changes in our Hotfix plans.  More than a year ago, we introduced the notion of advertising hotfixes and enabling people to browse and download the hotfixes the find most useful.  Prior to that, the only way to get a hotfix was to call customer support with a problem and have them determine that one of our available hotfixes would solve it.  Six months or so ago, we introduced a new and much improved site (MSDN Code Gallery) for searching for and browsing hotfixes.  We also enabled notification via an RSS feed.

We have just added a new capability - localization of all Hotfix information.  Hotfix descriptions are now available in 10 languages (including English).  When you go to MSDN Code Gallery, you will now see a page with links for each of the supported languages.

I hope our international customers will find this to be a big help in keeping their VS, VSTS and TFS products up to date.
