Our first replies crossed and you evidently didn't see mine before you
posted. I (believe I) covered that there and you will have probably seen
it by now, but just in case, a quick summary...
The XDG autostart path is for *.desktop files, while the kde autostart
path is for executables/scripts, so it's not that one's being deprecated
(to my knowledge at least) but that they serve two different purposes
There's also the kde shutdown and pre-start/env dirs/paths, making four
locations in total, each with its own purpose.
