Why did Activity 6 remove the delegateExecution method getCurrentActivityName()?

Attempting to migrate to v6 but I'm finding that the DelegateExecution class removed the method getCurrentActivityName(). Why is this the case, and is there another way I can achieve this functionality?

For reference:

DelegateExecution (Activiti - Engine 5.22.0 API) 

DelegateExecution (Activiti - Engine 6.0.0.RC1-SNAPSHOT API)  [Missing getCurrentActivityName()]
