13* The instance_config_print() function was removed. It was deprecated in
14 Moodle 2.0, but without debugging notices. Since it was no longer a part
15 of the code path, debugging notices would not have been displayed.
16* Deprecated functions were removed from the block_base class:
17** _print_block()
18** _print_shadow()
19** _title_html()
20** _add_edit_controls()
21** config_print()

31the applicable_formats function does not include "'my' => false" in the returned array,
32allowing it be added to the My Home page.
