Re: Deprecated - is it a word?
John asked -
Hi, I'm in the UK, and I was about to write in some release notes that a
given feature was "deprecated".
John, I found this as well. I don't know how reliable the source is but
"deprecated (term that is recommended not to be used anymore - this may have
different reasons, e.g. a misleading term, ambiguity and multiple meanings)"
Just to clarify, what appears between parentheses above is a definition of the word deprecated, not a commentary on whether it is a word you should use.
My take is that if you are writing technical documentation for software developers, use the word; if you are writing end user doc, don't, unless you also supply a definition.
