NoSuchMethodError while starting JIRA 7.0.5#70114

After updating JIRA 6.4 to JIRA Software 7.0.5 the server starts with an NoSuchMethodError:

java.lang.RuntimeException: javax.servlet.ServletException: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: com.atlassian.jira.security.JiraAuthenticationContext.getLoggedInUser()Lcom/atlassian/crowd/embedded/api/User;

What is there to do?

At first restart JIRA server.

Of course we did that, it didn't help. There seem to some plugins that use deprecated API. This API is removed in version 7. So I deleted all installed plugins and managed to get around this error.
