has bzip2 compression been deprecated?

I'm trying to work out which compression algorithm I should be using in my MapReduce jobs.  It seems to me that the best solution is a compromise between speed, efficiency and splittability. The only compression algorithm to handle file splits (according to Hadoop: The Definitive Guide 2nd edition p78 etc) is bzip2, at the expense of compression speed.

However, I see from the documentation at http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/current/native_libraries.html that the bzip2 library is no longer mentioned, and hasn't been since version 0.20.0, see http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/r0.20.0/native_libraries.html - however the bzip2 Codec is still in the API at http://hadoop.apache.org/common/docs/current/api/org/apache/hadoop/io/compress/BZip2Codec.html.

Has bzip2 support been removed from Hadoop, or will it be removed soon?
