It will depend on who you talk to.
Would you consider correcting a spelling mistake in a
tooltip a new release?
Marketing certainly wouldn't.
From a development and support point of view, if it goes to
a client it needs a new version number and is a 'release'
however I'd call it a 'maintenance release' of which I make
available each month. Generally it is not required that
clients adopt a maintenance release and many prefer to wait
for a full (major) release.
