As announced last month (
), IBM has updated all content in Updates for Windows Applications in 
order to provide internationalization support for French, Italian, German, 
Spanish, Chinese Simplified, and Japanese. This change will affect users 
of the currently separate fixlets for applications in French. These 
fixlets will be disabled on Friday, April 29th, 2011 in favor of the more 
complete international Fixlets. The language-specific "Patches for 
Windows" sites are not affected by this change.

These new international Fixlets replace the currently English only Updates 
for Windows Applications Fixlets. All language support is consolidated 
into one Fixlet per product to increase performance and usability. Because 
French updates were supported by separate Fixlets in the past, there has 
been an overlap period for French users of one month. French users have 
been seeing both international versions and French versions of relevant 
Fixlets in the console from Tuesday March 29th, 2011 until the French 
Fixlets are retired this Friday, April 29th, 2011.

Actions to Take: 
Patching customers using French language Updates for Windows Applications 
fixlets in baselines will need to recreate those baselines using the 
International equivalents.
