There aren't enough details in the original post to really say one way or
the other. If you need to re-release the fixed version and don't mind
getting any new commits since the last release, then you don't need a
branch. On the other hand, branching lets you fix what's broken without
releasing code that may not be ready for prime-time, which is usually what
you want.
