Macros have been removed, but keymaps are still there, so not much has been lost. IIRC only real difference between keymaps and macros was that macros could be used anytime game accepts input, but keymaps only when game is ready to accept commands. There has been some improvements also on keymaps, you can for example remove -more- prompts by surrounding your command sequence with brackets() and special keys can be used by their name ([Tab] is tabulator {S}[Tab] would be shift-tabulator [Esc] is esc etc.), making writing them easier even outside of game.

[EDIT] extra bracket removed.
