The new image loader framework doesn't use Jimi at all anymore. In
theory, the whole old image handling classes can now be removed. It
simply hasn't been done, yet. Deprecation is probably not necessary in
this case as it is not recommended to use the old image stuff separately.
I wanted to keep the old stuff for reference for a while but I don't
think we need it anymore. So the note in the release notes means that
Jimi isn't needed/used at runtime anymore. The changes in the build are
just not done, yet.
The java-1.3 directory can equally be removed as well as 1.3-specific
stuff in build.xml.
