Is this being deprecated because it doesn't work correctly? The reason should be mentioned. I have read it is buggy.

In my testing with 8PSK it does more harm than good, regardless the settings used.

Note: the modulus setting doesn't seem to mean the same thing as modulus in related components, and a modulus of 1 is used for QPSK in the tutorial.

"The error value and tap update equations (for p=2) can be found in..." None of the fields are named "p" so this could be clearer.

Deprecating blocks seems like an annoying thing to do. Unfortunately, sometimes things that seemed like a good idea turn out to be a dead end. In this case, we now have better alternatives: Linear_Equalizer and Adaptive_Algorithm.
