[Mediawiki-api-announce] Deprecation of list=allusers 'recenteditcount' result property

Brad Jorsch (Anomie)
When list=allusers is used with auactiveusers, a property 'recenteditcount' is returned in the result. In bug 67301[1] it was pointed out that this property is including various other logged actions, and so should really be named something like "recentactions".

Gerrit change 130093,[2] merged today, adds the "recentactions" result property. "recenteditcount" is also returned for backwards compatability, but will be removed at some point during the MediaWiki 1.25 development cycle.

Any clients using this property should be updated to use the new property name. The new property will be available on WMF wikis with 1.24wmf12, see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.24/Roadmap for the schedule.

This deprecated property, announced in July 2014, will be removed in MediaWiki 1.34. On Wikimedia sites, the removal will likely be deployed with 1.34.0-wmf.2, which is scheduled for next week.

If your client is still using the "recenteditcount" property rather than "recentactions", you should update your code ASAP.
