use PHP Exception
yeah it will be dropped, but that will take a while, not before J!3.0 I guess

It would be nice though to have some examples of how to use the php exception.
It is much harder now to find all functions that have been deprecated. The logs are filled with deprecated messages for the error class, which is not too helpful.

It's used over 900 times in the core. My guess is they want to do away with the pat-based code. Surely they'll come up with an alternative.

If you guys use ana IDE for developement, for example "Eclipse IDE" it just change the color of deprecated functions and show the respective message located on the function comments, you can also press control + click over the function anme to opent its code and see the deprecation message

While JError is deprecated we're not gonna be able to get rid of it too soon.

Stuff that should be logged and not output to the user should use JLog. For anything output to the user you're pretty much stuck with JError for now.

Thank you for your reply!
I am still trying to get my head around it, but I'll figure it out.
