We have done some additional ACSIL cleanup in version 2155, to be released. The following functions and data members have been removed:

int AreTimeSpecificBars()

int AreRangeBars()

int AreNumberOfTradesBars()

int AreVolumeBars()

int AreRenkoBars()

int AreReversalBars()

int ArePriceChangesBars()

int AreDeltaVolumeBars()

int ArePointAndFigureBars()

sc.NumberOfTradesPerBar
sc.VolumePerBar
sc.RenkoTicksPerBar
sc.ReversalTicksPerBar
sc.PointAndFigureBoxSizeInTicks      
sc.PointAndFigureReversalSizeNumBoxes
sc.RenkoTrendOpenOffsetInTicks      
sc.RenkoReversalOpenOffsetInTicks
sc.DeltaVolumePerBar
sc.PriceChangesPerBar
sc.DailyDataBarPeriod
sc.DaysPerBar
sc.RangeBarValue
sc.RangeBarType  
sc.MonthsPerBar

These functions and members have been out of date now for years and have been documented as being deprecated during all of that time.

The replacement function to access this data is:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/ACSIL_Members_Functions.html#scGetBarPeriodParameters

The following text string members are now changed to functions:

SCString sc.VersionNumber();
SCString sc.UserName();
SCString sc.DataFilesFolder();
SCString sc.ServiceCodeForSelectedDataTradingService();
SCString sc.SCDataFeedSymbol();
SCString sc.CustomAffiliateCode();
SCString sc.ChartbookName();
SCString sc.ChartTextFont();

This is now a function:

n_ACSIL::DTCSecurityTypeEnum sc.SecurityType();

There are two reasons for this code cleanup. One reason is just to remove members which are just out of date and deprecated and the other reason is to improve performance and improve code safety.
