We undeprecated it. RabbitMQ server supports auto-delete on exchanges
for 0-9-1 clients.

http://www.rabbitmq.com/releases/rabbitmq-java-client/v2.5.1/rabbitmq-java-client-javadoc-2.5.1/com/rabbitmq/client/Channel.html#exchangeDeclare(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, boolean, boolean, boolean, java.util.Map)

However, our 0-9-1 reference guide still leaves it as just a "reserved"
bit - http://www.rabbitmq.com/amqp-0-9-1-reference.html#class.exchange

I thought there was a bug about fixing this, but I can't find it. Our
json version fully undeprecates it:


Whilst our xml version suggests it's still deprecated:


What a mess!
