Is the User Information List deprecated in SharePoint 2010? I have been advised that it is, and that it can no longer be easily synched with AD.
It has been suggested that if I need this sort of user data for a data view, I should access the User Profile Service directly. However, short of using a certain third party component, I cannot find any reference to doing so.
So is using the User Information List still a recomended practice, or is there a better way of getting the same data?
