As the language evolves some functions might become obsolete, maybe just more sensibly renamed. This is the list of such functions: see in the manual for reasons/updates.
Call [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] apply a function to given arguments
Cast [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] type conversion
ColumnVectors [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] list of module elements
Comp [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] access a component
E_ [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] vector of the canonical basis
functions [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] replaced by describe
Get [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] use GetLine instead
IsInSubalgebra [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] check if one polynomial is in a subalgebra
IsNumber [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] checks if the argument is a number
LinKerModP [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] find the kernel of a matrix mod p

PoincareMultiDeg [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE]
PoincareShifts [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE]
randomize [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] randomize the coefficients of a given polynomial
randomized [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] randomize the coefficients of a given polynomial

ResetPanels [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] reset panels to their default values
RingEnv [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] name of the ring environment
