Superceded fixes and fix order

Post by Phred » Sun Jan 14, 2007 8:33 pm

Some fixes become superceded by later fixes – one example are the cumulative IE fixes. Do the update packs tend to remove superceded fixes or just leave them? Does it make any difference?

Also when using WGA/automatic updates, fixes don’t arrive strictly in numeric order; they arrive when they become available. Do the update packs/the Integrator apply fixes in date order, that is when then were released, or strictly in numeric order (or some other order)? Does it make any difference?

Cheers,
Phred

Superseded fixes are always removed as they become obsolete, primarily for efficiency.
