    Usually that means the method has been deprecated. Refer to the API page for the object using the method to get the latest info.

    Thanks, so basically it means it's been updated or something was done to it.

    It means that it has been replaced by another preferred method but the "old" way of doing it is allowed to maintain compatibility with existing code.
