I was reading up about tables and found the overview in the Wiki [1]
with the following remark.

   Not each provides everything you may need, and the older ones
   are deprecated. [1]

Could someone please clarify which macros are deprecated or which are
the recommended or supported/still developed ones. This question is  
also

asked on the discussion page.


tabulate and TABLE are recommended. table and tables are deprecated  
(but TABLE suports most of table's syntax). linetable is experimental  
(don't know if it's supported on MkIV).

I use the table macros that come with TeXsis instead.
