Subject: Where is histogram?

I started building an IOC using the histogram record and it gave me an "unknown type" error. I checked the
source (I'm using EPICS 3.14.12) and even though the record is defined in <EPICSBASE>/src/rec it's
not included in <EPICSBASE>/src/misc/base.dbd. In fact it's the only record defined in /src/rec that
is not there.

This leads me to a number of questions:

-Is this just a bug? Or is histogram an obsolete record?
-Does this mean nobody is actually using the histogram record?
-If nobody uses histogram, what do they use? Waveform?
