Error message

Deprecated: Function xxx_xxxxxx() is deprecated in /path/to/something.php on line xxx

Solution

Deprecation is a status applied to features, characteristics, or practices to indicate that they should be avoided, typically because they have been superseded.

Although deprecated software features remain in the software, their use may raise warning messages recommending alternative practices, and deprecation may indicate that the feature will be removed in the future. Features are deprecated—rather than immediately removed—in order to provide backward compatibility, and give programmers who have used the feature time to bring their code into compliance with the new standard.

Send a bugreport to the (module)developer in the Forge, so he can fix this problem.
But in the mean time you can suppress this message by removing the hash (#) in front of these php_ lines in the default .htaccess file:

# To prevent E_STRICT problems with PHP 5.3+ you can uncomment the following lines
# Note: These settings should only be enabled for production sites!
#php_flag display_startup_errors 0
#php_flag display_errors 0
#php_flag html_errors 0
#php_value docref_root 0
#php_value docref_ext 0

You will find the latest default .htaccess file in the docs folder at your webserver. Copy the file htaccess.txt to the root of your website and rename the file to .htaccess
