A: In many cases, the new in-Viewer context sensitive help replaces old articles, which we'll be archiving as we transition from Viewer 1.23 to 2. In addition, the Documentation Team is focusing on hot stuff to update. The process is incremental and gradual, and since the KB is Resident-contributed, if you'd like to help, come join us!
