Is ESM / VSM gone?

In the previous version there was a ESM / VSM option under the shadow settings in eevee. In blender 2.82 it is not there. Was it removed?

Yes it was removed. Those VSM and ESM shadow rendering techniques were replaced with a single better system that produces better shadows, PCF. No more dealing with that setting anymore because no one needs it. PCF is default.
