--from this 8.7, you can upgrade to any of the 2E 8.7.x Cumulative patches directly.

Note: If you directly upgrade to 8.7.x from 8.7. then 8.7.x automatically contains the earlier Cumulative patch features and fixes. No need for incremental installation.

i.e for example if you directly upgrade to 8.7.2 from 8.7 then in addition to the features given in 8.7.2, it automatically contains the fixes and features given in earlier Cumulative patches i.e here 8.7.1.
