It is, according at least to

- Free Merriam-Webster: http://mw1.m-w.com/dictionary/obsoleted
- Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary:

Note that the second one is a reference from the 1913 edition, so it
is not even new. The Recency Illusion
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Recency_illusion) may be in play here.
