TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
"Bug fix" is easily understood by users, developers, managers,
regulators, distributors, service techs -- you get the idea. You can
find a hundred euphemisms, some facetious and some earnest, but none are
as easily understood. We are tech writers, and clarity is our business.
As for "official" terms, that depends on your organization -- Marketing
sometimes frowns on clarity.
And make sure it's really a bug fix, and not just an improvement to a
working function. Your organization should have a clear definition of
these as well.
