Forum OpenACS Development: OpenACS 5.0: Deprecated procs in acs-* packages

Request notifications

Hi,

We're currently looking at deprecated procs and have already fixed nearly 1000 ocurrences of ad_parameter, export_form_vars, export_url_vars, ad_maybe_redirect_for_registration etc. in the ]po[ code.

However, there are quite some uses of deprecated procs in the acs-* packages. Are you going to fix them for OpenACS 5.9?

Maybe you guys could be a bit less aggressively deprecating stuff in the future. It's causing a lot of work for us, but I don't see the "value" of deprecating, as compared to moving the stuff into a "acs-deprecated" package or similar.

Cheers,
Frank

Hi,

That's OpenACS 5.9 obviously. No way to edit...

"Value" of deprecating is that people gets constantly poked and eventually go for cleaning up their code :-)

Btw, it is good news that ]po[ is syncing with current OpenACS, this could be very positive for both projects. Keep up the good work!

Hi Frank,

most of the deprecated functions are deprecated since more than 10 years. OpenACS 5.9.0 complains only a little louder in the error.log. The 81 packages of oacs-5-9 and the 19 packages used on openacs.org [1] are free of all deprecated calls.

What are the acs-packages you are talking about? Can it be that you have not updated these packages yet?
