According to FOLDOC (Free On-Line Dictionary of Computing):


Said of a program or feature that is considered obsolescent and in the
process of being phased out, usually in favour of a specified replacement.
Deprecated features can, unfortunately, linger on for many years. This term
appears with distressing frequency in standards documents when the
committees writing the documents realise that large amounts of extant (and
presumably happily working) code depend on the feature(s) that have passed
out of favour.
