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
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
LinSol [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] find a solution to a linear system
MapDown [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] convert a constant polynomial to a number
Mod2Rat [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] reconstruct rationals from modular integers
NewId [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] create a new identifier
NFsAreZero [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE]test if normal forms are zero
Option [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] status of a panel option
panel [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] print status of a panel's options
panels [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] list of CoCoA panels
PoincareMultiDeg [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE]
PoincareShifts [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE]
Reset [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] reset panels and random number seed to defaults
ResetPanels [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] reset panels to their default values
RingEnv [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] name of the ring environment
RingSet [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] renamed RingsOf
SubalgebraMap [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] algebra homomorphism representing a subalgebra
Unset [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE] set and unset panel options
WLog [OBSOLETE] [OBSOLETE]weighted list of exponents

Some functions are obsolescent, that means that they are still usable but will be deleted in some future version of CoCoA (leaving some time to adapt to the replacing function).

hilbert [OBSOLESCENT] the Hilbert-Poincare' function
HomogElimMat [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] renamed to ElimHomogMat
image [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] apply ring homomorphism
insert [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] insert an object in a list
log [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] renamed to exponents
MinGensGeneral [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] renamed MinSubsetOfGens
NewLine [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] string containing a newline
poincare [OBSOLESCENT] [OBSOLESCENT] the Hilbert-Poincare series
