The replacement for range_foreach() is range_foreach().


The replacement for range_copy() is range_copy().


The replacement for range_convert_str() is range_convert_str().


The replacement for range_empty() is range_empty().


The replacement for register_dissector_table() is register_dissector_table().

I.e., none of those routines have been deprecated, and they're still standard APIs in the current version of Wireshark, all versions since 1.7, and in the master branch.

Why do you believe they were deprecated?
