Here we will discuss about the FAST Query language (FQL) features that are deprecated in SharePoint 2013.
The following describes the FAST Query language (FQL) features that are deprecated in SharePoint 2013. 

ANY operator - This operator has the same effect as the OR operator.

RANK operator- This operator is accepted but does not affect result ranking.

XRANK operator-This operator has a new and more flexible syntax.The old syntax is deprecated.

STRING operator-The N parameter is accepted but ignored. The ANNOTATION_CLASS parameter is not supported.

Implicit typing of numeric data types-The FQL parser is not search schema-aware, and some implicit numeric data typing is no longer supported.

The reason for change is to simplify the query syntax, some redundant syntax features were removed from SharePoint 2013.

The following describes what to replace the deprecated FQL operators or features with.

ANY operator - WORDS operator

RANK operator - XRANK operator

XRANK operator - New syntax

STRING operator - For proximity operations, use the NEAR/ONEAR operators. For mapping of end-user query text.

Numeric data types -Type numeric data explicitly. Use either the int/float/decimal operators, or consistently use decimal/float syntax in the query.

eDiscovery in SharePoint Server 2013.

Here we will discuss about eDiscovery in SharePoint Server 2013.

The eDiscovery functionality in SharePoint Server 2013 provides improved ways to help you protect your business. It includes the followings
A site collection from which you can perform eDiscovery queries across multiple SharePoint farms and Exchange servers and preserve the items that are discovered.

It supports for searching and exporting content from file shares.

The ability to export discovered content from Exchange Server 2013 and SharePoint Server 2013.

SharePoint eDiscovery Center
SharePoint Server 2013 introduces a new site for managing discovery cases and holds. The eDiscovery Center site template creates a portal through which you can access discovery cases to conduct searches, place content on hold, and export content. For each case, you create a new site that uses the eDiscovery Case site template.A a user who has appropriate permissions can create a new case, create eDiscovery sets to identify the specific material to be located, and then preserve the sites and mailboxes in which content was discovered. The user can then create queries to further refine the content that is relevant, preview the content, and export the content. When the case is closed, all of the holds associated with the case are released.

SharePoint in-place holds
In SharePoint Server 2013, content that is put on hold is preserved, but users can still change it. The state of the content at the time of preservation is recorded. If a user changes the content or even deletes it, the original, preserved version is still available.
Documents, list items, pages, and Exchange Server 2013 mailboxes can be preserved.
Users can continue to work with content that is preserved. The content remains in the same location, and users can edit, delete, and add new content.

SharePoint eDiscovery export
In SharePoint Server 2013, you can export the results of an eDiscovery search for later import into a review tool. You can export all of the content that is associated with an eDiscovery case.
