TIdSync vs TThread.Synchronize

Yes, it is still fully implemented. As is TIdNotify.

Only in versions of Delphi/C++Builder/FreePascal that support the public TThread.Synchronize() that takes an anonymous procedure as input.

That doc is OLD, it predates a lot of changes to Indy's internals.

Now, if I switch to use TTThread.Synchronize, is it really as easy as using TIdsync to allow pass parmater to and get return value? 

It is easier, using an anonymous procedure, for example:

var TheResult: TheType;
    TheResult := DoSomethingWith(parameters);

It will not be removed in Indy 10, but it will likely be removed in Indy 11 with other deprecated features, whenever that eventually gets released.
