Application Manager for MECM

Supercedence Relationship Removal for Non-existing Applications

Supersedence relationships for non-existing applications are removed weekly. This feature only affects applications created by Application Manager where Retired cleanup is set to 'Remove retired applications and media'.

Application Revision Cleanup

Application revisions are removed from Configuration Manager before distributing content to a distribution point group. This improvement prevents potential performance issues when Revision cleanup is set to 'True' and the application has dependencies.
