I'd agree deprecated isn't a commonly-known word, but a deprecated
feature is neither deleted nor removed.

If you want another word how about "no longer supported features".

Debbie Hemstreet asked, " why make the user have to think by using the
term "Depracated" Why not "Deleted Features" or "Removed Features"?"

Peter Hirons replied, "Because they are not the meaning of deprecated."

My question is, how many users will know the meaning of "Deprecated", or
care what it means? They just want a "heads-up" idea about what has
changed in the new release, and how it will affect their work. I agree
with Debbie on this.
