The latest update seems to have deprecated some CSS properties. What should one use now?

In the following some of the properties one should no longer use are given. It would be great if the respective messages could tell us what to use instead. The message that platform:/plugin/ is deprecated tells us, for example, that one should use bundleclass:// instead.

I 've got the same problem. Unfortunately no documentation available of valid property names to use.

That thought had occurred to me, but we put the change in quite late and I didn't want to risk introducing a bug by changing it. I'll see about making a more informative message for the M7 build.

Basically most of the deprecated properties have been prefixed with "swt-". You can see the list by looking at the plugin.xml for org.eclipse.e4.ui.css.swt (use Ctrl-Shift-A to open the manifest).

Out of curiosity: are you guys using just CSS files, or have you tried to introduce custom properties?

I use just plain CSS files, I am not very familiar with custom properties.
Probably I will take a look at it and give it a try.
