So CU2 for Q4 2015 just got released and it seems you now need to run the full installer instead of patches. Is anyone else a bit annoyed by this? It means installs are now much longer so more downtime due to it needing to re-install the whole app. All customisations are wiped out which mean they need re-doing and my biggest concern is that there is no way to rollback a patch and you must do a full restore. If a serious bug in a CU is noticed 3 days after install for example then you can't restore as you will have 3 days worth of content / tests / assignments which you would lose and Blackboard has a less than stellar history of providing CU's which don't break things.
I'm going to raise it with support, but would be interested to know if i'm on my own here.
