In 42034:

Customize: Deprecate nav menu classes that are no longer used, instead of removing them immediately.

  • Deprecate PHP classes WP_Customize_New_Menu_Section and WP_Customize_New_Menu_Control.
  • Deprecate JS class wp.customize.Menus.NewMenuControl.
  • Also introduce wp.customize.Menus.createNavMenu() for logic to create nav menus separately from the logic for handling UI interactions.

Amends [41768].
See #40104, #42364.
Fixes #42357.

@Matthias Reuter are you able to refresh the patch? It is not applying to trunk currently.

  • Milestone changed from 5.2 to Future Release

As 5.2 is now in beta and this was something that needed early attention, I'm removing it from the milestone.

  • Keywords needs-refresh removed
  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 5.4

I have create a new patch for the removal of the wp.customize.Menus.NewMenuControl (in JS) and the formal deprecation of the PHP WP_Customize_New_Menu_Section and WP_Customize_New_Menu_Control classes.

As those PHP classes have now been in Core for much longer than originally intended, I'm hesitant about removing them outright and have opted for aggressive deprecation instead.

  • Keywords commit needs-dev-note added

Thanks @jrf! I tend to agree with you on not straight up removing the classes. If someone is able to do a scan of the plugin directory and there are no plugins using these classes, I think we could reconsider.

42364.2.diff just adds the @deprecated tag to the function docblocks in addition to the _deprecated_file() and _deprecated_function() calls.

These changes should also get a brief dev note, just in case any plugins or themes are using them.

Since this is marked early, I'm going to commit this so it can have some soak time.

  • Status changed from new to closed

In 46637:

Customize: Formally deprecate unused Customizer classes.

The WP_Customize_New_Menu_Control and WP_Customize_New_Menu_Section PHP classes and wp.customize.Menus.NewMenuControl JS class were deprecated in 4.9 through [42034] with the intention of removing them in 5.0. Since more time has passed than originally intended, this change leaves WP_Customize_New_Menu_Control and WP_Customize_New_Menu_Section to prevent any potential backwards compatibility issues, and formally deprecates them. The wp.customize.Menus.NewMenuControl JS class is removed.

Props weston.ruter, matthias-reuter, jrf.
Fixes #42364.
