Superseded fixlets are fixlets that contain outdated packages. If a fixlet is superseded, then a newer fixlet exists with newer versions of the packages. The newer Fixlet ID can be found in the description of the superseded Fixlet.
IBM® Tivoli® Endpoint Manager for Patch Management and Launchpad use the term supersedence differently. A package with superseded status in the Launchpad website must not be taken to mean the same as when a fixlet is described as superseded.
In Launchpad terminology, supersedence is a property of every package. For IBM® Tivoli® Endpoint Manager for Patch Management, supersedence is a property of fixlets that provides multiple packages. When a fixlet is superseded, it means that there is an existing, newer, and more advanced fixlet with the same set of packages.
