    1. AFAIK, no features added only bug fixes
    2. follow the readme for applying the patches
    - you must upgrade the dictionary tables by running catproc catexp et. al. again

    8.1.7.0.0 is the base release and contains MANY bugs. 8.1.7.4.1 is a patch release.

    Make sure that you keep up to current patches on your database.
