CELT 0.11.0 provides better quality in comparison to CELT 0.7.0, but the two versions of the codecs are not compatible, which is why we provided both of them.
Opus was introduced in Mumble 1.2.4 (7586a61), thus we expect that most (if not all) users are using it.
By removing CELT 0.11.0 we don't break backwards compatibility, because it's provided by CELT 0.7.0.
The main reason for removing the codec is the fact that its discontinued (in favor of Opus).
Also, CELT 0.11.0 was removed from the Debian package back in 2012: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=682010
