Renamed template field is not published correctly?

Tags:     sitecore-bug, sitecore-publishing

I have found the same issue. All i have done is renamed an existing field and published but sitecore is not updating the web database with new field name.
This means some item/rendering parameter fields are not updating on publish.

I have raised a support ticket and her is the response from sitecore support:

The behavior you have reported is a known issue in 8.2 rev. 170407 (Update-3). It is fixed in Sitecore XP 8.2 Update-4.

Be aware that the hotfix was built specifically for 8.2 rev. 170407 (Update-3), and you should not install it on other Sitecore versions or in combination with other hotfixes, unless explicitly instructed by Sitecore Support.
