Is it still ok/desirable to use DS.Store.filter in Ember Data 2+?

The Ember (+Ember Data) guides no longer seem to discuss using Store.filter for V2.0+.

I was wondering if it is no longer considered good practice to use?

I use Websockets and periodic data pulls to maintain the latest set of records across my app, using Store.filter extensively to have live reloading arrays across my application.

Honestly it’s not clear at all to me either and I’ve asked for clarification. I don’t know if they still plan to deprecate it or if it’ll stick around. Either way, they won’t be able to remove it until Ember-Data 3.x, so I’m going to continue to use it.
