The sad truth is that not all extensions are updated in time for a new 
release. Even though the removed functions were logged in the 
deprecation log since TYPO3 4.6 there are many extensions which aren't 
After the functions are finally removed (and fatal errors occur) part of 
those extensions are updated with a new release. Other extensions are 
not updated and could be regarded as "abandoned".

The series of alpha, beta and RC versions prior to the final release of 
a new TYPO3 version could also be used to test extensions for 
compatibility and to ask the extension author for an update in time for 
the final release.
