[BioC] Missing function locuslinkQuery and locuslinkBYID in annotate 1.18.0

I don't have access to the source tree. Does this mean that I need to download the annotate library again, or can I grab the functions separately? If the latter, how is that done?

These functions seem to have disappeared as we moved from the older
annotations to the new kind. I have just checked in some replacement
functions for you into the development branch (entrezGeneByID() and
entrezGeneQuery()). If you have access to the source tree then these
are already available, but they should be on the website within 24 hours.

I noticed that the session info for the documenation had XML version 1.95.2 instead of 1.96-0 as in mine. I also listed all of the functions available in the annotate package, using ls(package:annotate) and locuslinkQuery is not there. I looked around for various substitutes, but I could not find any. Has this function been removed? If so, what is its replacement? If not, what did I do wrong?
