    They will most likely keep it in to keep from breaking older code. They have done that with a number of functions to keep old projects working.

    Thanks Jeremy, if that's the case (and that's what I suspect also) then I would recommend they also change the script examples in the docs that use it. All in all, it's a pretty minor thing though.

    Dang.

    I just switched from using Debug.Log() to using Print() because it's quicker to type.

    print still works exactly like it used to do and there is no intention to change that.

    Ok, thanks for clearing that up Joe. I'll file the missing documentation as a bug report...

    Although, as Joe mentioned, print isn't going anywhere, did you know you can save even more typin' in Javascript by doing this?
    Code (csharp):
    1.  
    2. import UnityEngine.Debug;
    3.  
    4. function Start() {
    5.      Log("Se Ma'! No Debug!");
    6. }
    7.  
    8. function OnMouseDown() {
    9.      Log("Se Ma'! No Debug!");
    10. }
    11.  
    12.

    Now we need the homage to AppleSoft Basic, where:

    10 ? "HELLO, WORLD"

    worked ("?" was a shortcut for PRINT).
