Dota 2 to Patch More Frequently

A tweet from IceFrog has word from the pseudonymous lead developer of Dota 2 that they are going to shift from monolithic semiannual patches for Valve's MOBA to a more frequent update approach (thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun). Word is for about six months they will experiment with a new patch every two weeks:
We want to try taking a different approach to how gameplay patches are released. Instead of big patches a couple of times a year, we'll be releasing small patches every 2 weeks on Thursdays. We'll be trying this out for about six months and then reevaluating.
