Some more  examples of things that has been removed:

 From odbc-2.0 releasnotes:  (this was a long time ago)
- The old interface that became deprecated in odbc 1.0 has now been removed.

 From Inets-5.0 release notes: (R12)

-Deprecated base64 decode/encode functions have been removed. Inets uses 
base64 in STDLIB instead.

- The Inets application now has to be explicitly started and stopped 
i.e. it will not automatically be started as a temporary application as 
it did before. Although a practical feature when testing things in the 
shell it is not desirable that people take advantage of this and not 
start the Inets application in a correct way in their products. Added 
functions to the Inets API that call application:start/stop.

 From ssl-2.1 release notes: (this was a long time ago)

- The confounded notions of verify mode and verify depth has been 
corrected. The option verifydepth has been removed, and the two separate 
options verify and depth has been added.

The list can be made much longer but I have better thing to do ;)
