I have this old code that finds a MetaClass name by Id:
var metaClassName = Mediachase.MetaDataPlus.Configurator.MetaClass.Load(CatalogContext.MetaDataContext, _content.MetaClassId)?.Name ?? string.Empty;
So I was wondering -- is there a way to do this using Epi Repository objects? I have heard that "contexts" are deprecated.
That should be it - the contexts are not being deprecated. You can use them until further notice (which will not happen anytime soon)
