They actually do get along just fine, which is why the message you are
seeing is only a warning, not an error.

Thanks for confirming that it is the io package that is generating this
warning message.

Since Philip already participated in this thread, it's clear that he
knows about this change and that a future version of the io package will
be fixed to not use this deprecated function call.

No need to worry any further about it at this point.
