This is mentioned already in the release notes, but the following are
deprecated and likely to be removed in a future release:

Nyberg-Rueppel signature scheme
Rabin-Williams signature scheme
Block ciphers MARS, RC2, RC5, RC6, SAFER, TEA, XTEA
Hash functions MD2, HAS-160, RIPEMD-128
Support for DSA certificates in TLS

If there is some good reason to keep any of these around that I am
unaware of please reply to this thread or open an issue on github.
Otherwise I expect all will be removed within the next 6 months if not
