Incorrect notice 'get_currentuserinfo' in WP 4.5

Hey guys

In the process of updating several of my clients websites to WP 4.5, I've noticed the following when I have WP_DEBUG enabled

Notice: get_currentuserinfo is deprecated since version 4.5! Use wp_get_current_user() instead. in {website_dir}/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3662 (where website_dir is the full directory path for website)

I've taken a look into this function and it looks like WordPress is calling _deprecated_function and inside there on line 3662 it is executing

trigger_error( sprintf( __('%1$s is <strong>deprecated</strong> since version %2$s! Use %3$s instead.'), $function, $version, $replacement ) );

From what I can see something is calling get_currentuserinfo but this debug isn't really helpful (I'm not sure if this is a plugin that's causing this or something in my theme).

I'm almost 100% sure I've seen these warnings and they usually provide a location as to where the depreciated function was called from.

I assume somewhere in core the _deprecated_function is being called for get_currentuserinfo. It would be good if it also outlined where the deprecated function is being used.

Let me know if I can be of any help / if you guys need further information.

  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

This ticket is not a duplicate of #36517, but a suggested enhancement to show the actual line of usage in deprecated notices instead of the line where _deprecated_function() resides.

I'm sure there's a ticket for that, though. Maybe you know the number of that one, @SergeyBiryukov?
