Where do I find all the hotfixes for 2019 SP5.0?

After a load of problems we last week my VAR advised it might be wise to update to the last service pack of 2019 sp5.0

I had delayed this because of a worrying flood of forum posts about features that were broken by SP5.0 when it was issued, this being one example:

https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/236807

 

This particular one is has a hot fix https://customerportal.solidworks.com/siebel/app/customerportal/enu?SWECmd=Login&SWEPL=1&SRN=&SWETS=1267144948839 (linked in that forum post, but not findable by any other method I know of?).

 

There seems to be no list of hotfixes implemented for SP5.0 anywhere and the general hotfix list is actually blank for SW2019.

https://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/Hotfixes.htm

 

So how I can install SW2019 SP5.0 together with all hotfixes that have been issued for that version?

Why have hotfixes been issued but then kept more or less secret? Do they make as many problems as they solve or something?
