Upgrading from 4.1.1 to latest: problems with User class in custom plugins

I'm upgrading from Jira 4.1.1 to latest version.
I'm doing my first step modifying the source code of our custom plugins but I'm not able to get rid of the "deprecated" warning about the User class.

If I did no misunderstanding, I'm using the SDK 6.2.8 and in my my pom.xml I've the dependencies from jira-api-4.4.5 and jira-core-4.4.5.jar
So I modified the deprecated com.opensymphony.user.User to the new com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User but, when I'm going to check classes extending  AbstractJiraCondition I have the shouldDisplay method still using deprecated com.opensymphony.user.User as described here in docs

Where am I wrong ? Am I missing something ?

Thanks for replying

I suppose you should update your jira-api and -core dependencies at your pom.xml to the latest.

But they depends on jira.version tag.

In my pom.xml I have:


And in jira.version tag I set:


that is the version through which I'm trying to rebuild the old plugins.

I got the pom.xml executing atlas-create-jira-plugin
