Why HTTPProxy host[:port] option is deprecated?

I launched an HTTP web proxy (Squid-cache) and the Tor server takes the internet from this server. I used the HTTPProxy host[:port] option in the torrc file, but Tor tells me that this option is deprecated.
What has replaced the HTTPProxy host[:port] option?

Thank you.

From tor.html.in in tor-

HTTPProxy host[:port]
    Tor will make all its directory requests through this host:port (or host:80 if port is not specified), rather than connecting directly to any directory servers. (DEPRECATED: As of you should use HTTPSProxy.) 

Thank you so much for your reply.
So, must I use HTTPSProxy host[:port] statement?
What happens if I use both at the same time?

I think you should only use HTTPSProxy.
