Deprecated Features and Code Timelines

From time to time, certain features within the Cosmic theme, the UOBanner module, or the UOComms Installation Profile may be removed or modified in a manner that previous content using those features may no longer work.

To avoid causing unexpected change in functionality when this happens, we maintain these deprecated features in a seperate file as part of the theme or module for a period of at least 6 months. During the 6 month deprecation window, these features will still function as usual, but will not receive additional functionality or bugfixes. After this point, the functionality will be removed from future versions on the software.
