Replacements for deprecated Kerberos APIs?

I'm trying to document the replacement calls for the deprecated Kerberos APIs.  Here's the list that I have so far, but I'm not sure what the proper new calls are for some of the old APIs.  Can anyone fill in the blanks?  Am I missing any?

I've tried Google, but I only get documentation on the old APIs, and not on what they should be replaced with.  The information I have so far came from discussions on the various Kerberos mailing lists.

Old API                                              New API
