Px.ecdf (Empirical Cumulative Distribution Function) not working

px.ecdf seems to be deprecated in latest version of plotly-express. Was this on purpose or an error?

This does not work anymore:

import plotly.express as px
df = px.data.tips()
fig = px.ecdf(df, x="total_bill", color="sex")

Alternatively you can use px.scatter() to plot the ECDF. That works well, but you need an additional step to calculate the ECDF.

Maybe px.ecdf() returns in the next version of plotly-express?

Has anybody further information on future status of ecdf? I appreciate the function and if depreciated I would like to know how to replace it.
