Techopedia Explains Technical Errata

Some people think of technical errata as a list of bug fixes. Others think of it as a set of errors along with solutions or corrections. Technical errata is somewhat of an academic term in the computer science world – many professionals would choose something more colloquial like “glitches” or “bugs.” However, technical errata can be extremely useful, for example, in beta testing or specific user testing scenarios. Those who want to understand the use of the term “technical errata” can also look in academics under the literary meaning of “errata,” again, as a definitive list of flaws or deviations.
