We've released five patches (also known as hotfixes) for RAD Studio 10.3.2. To ensure you know about all of them, and can install correctly, here is a list and some overview information. If we release any others, we'll update this blog post with details.
When we release a patch, we have a download containing the files and a readme with installation instructions. To ensure you know about the patch, we also blog about it. The blogs also sometimes contain extra contextual information - the readme might have installation instructions, but the blog post might explain why those instructions are the way they are, for example, or it might discuss some other aspect of the patch. We always recommend keeping our blog feed in your bookmarks, because entirely aside from patches, we regularly post about other useful or interesting material.
RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder 10.3.2 was released on 18th July 2019 (2019-07-18 in ISO 8601 format.) If you have an active update subscription, you can install via the web installer (recommended) or the offline ISO installer. After installing, apply the patches.
In chronological order, the patches for 10.3.2 are:
Two of these patches (#3 and #5) both change the same file, and for those two it is critical you install in the same order they were released, chronologically. However, in general, we recommend that when you install patches:
Finally, we're sometimes asked if patches are included in the next release of Delphi or C++Builder. The answer is Yes. The issues addressed by a patch are always addressed in the next version of RAD Studio. Here, given these are patches for RAD Studio 10.3.2, that means that RAD Studio 10.3.3 will include fixes for all the issues in these patches, plus additional quality work.
We work hard to ensure RAD Studio is useful for you, and that includes timely fixes for any issues that are discovered after release. Make sure you have update subscription, so that you have access to each point release, which includes many new features and quality fixes - 10.3.2, for example, fixed around 400 issues you reported, as well as adding some significant new features. Update Subscription allows you to stay up to date, and is well worth it.

Y'all have got to make this Hotfix application process easier than this! Or, am I missing something? Having to go into each folder and copy the contents into the destination folder is time consuming and ridiculous. Seems like a simple .exe that could copy the files into it's destination should be pretty easy for Embarcadero. Seriously tired of having to do this several times for each release.
For sure - this is something we're looking at. For example, perhaps we can deliver hotfixes via GetIt.
