It would be great if this message explained what the new testing interface was, where to find it, and optimally how to quickly create something more or less equivalent to the runTests function so we can get on with our lives. :)

I have uploaded a patch for this issue. The deprecation warning now points to UpgradingTests on the wiki.

@jsl

Based on the comments in this issue it seems to be resolved, so I propose closing. Please open a new issue if this is still something that needs to be addressed.
