Hotfix has been one of the most important plugin for any WordPress user. It is the first plugin people add in their WordPress right after installation. Hotfix is a plugin that provides early, automated fix for the WordPress version you are using. It is meant to address bugs, that are not severe or common enough to have a separate release.
