In the programming languages that I'm familiar with
(Java and C++) the term "deprecated" is standard. I
don't know if the same is true in other programming
languages.

If you are writing for programmers (specs, API
reference, SDK docs) I would use the term "deprecated"
because it is standard, well understood and has a
precise meaning. If you are writing for anyone else,
you might substitute a more common word.

Hope this helps.

Scott
