The field of software design patterns has grown extensively since the first work on patterns in the 1990s. Design patterns have proved useful as encodings of good design practice and expert knowledge in a wide variety of domains, from enterprise information systems to software security. We look at some recent developments in the application of patterns, and identify some remaining theoretical and practical issues with the use of patterns.
