LOL ;-)

I meant https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deprecation (and added this link 
as ref [1] in my original email)
"From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Not to be confused with Depreciation.
Deprecation is a status applied to a computer software feature, 
characteristic, or practice indicating it should be avoided, typically 
because it is being superseded. The term is also sometimes used for a 
feature, design, or practice that is permitted but no longer recommended 
in other areas, such as hardware design or compliance to building codes."
