Deprecation: #95322 - Legacy Element Browser logic
See :issue:`95322`
The hook :php:`$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['typo3/browse_links.php']['browserRendering']` is marked
as deprecated as it has been superseded by the ElementBrowser API,
introduced in TYPO3 v7.6.
Calling the Backend Routing Endpoint "wizard_element_browser"
called via `?mode=wizard` or `?mode=rte` is deprecated.
Calling the Backend Routing Endpoint "wizard_element_browser"
called via `?mode=wizard` or `?mode=rte` will trigger a PHP deprecation warning.
Accessing the Element Browser with a registered hook will also
trigger a PHP deprecation warning.
Affected Installations
TYPO3 installations with legacy code (such as an old Element
Browser hook) or with old links to "wizard_element_browser"
prior to TYPO3 v8 which hasn't been updated yet.
Use the Element Browser API, introduced in TYPO3 v7.6 instead of the deprecated hook `$GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['SC_OPTIONS']['typo3/browse_links.php']['browserRendering']`.
Instead of referencing "wizard_element_browser" for accessing
the wizard, the link wizard with BE Routing Endpoint "wizard_link"
should be used instead.
