As we get closer to the release of the 1.4 version of the Bubbles plugin we are also keeping a close eye on the upcoming release of Confluence 3.0. Because of feature updates coming in Confluence 3.0 we are going to deprecate the my-recent-edits macro and the Recent Edits Profile Tab in the next release of the Bubbles plugin.

The 3.0 Confluence release will have some exciting new features, such as improved rich text editing, updated macro notation help and lots of updates to the personal profile including support for micro-blogging within Confluence itself. One of the features that has been announced via the development release notes is that the recently-updated macro will be able to show all the updates that a user has made not just the updates that are also the most recent revision. (Confluence 3.0-m7 Release Notes). Confluence 3.0 will also include an updated user profile that will show a users recent activity.

These two changes will effectively make the current functionality in the my-recent-edits macro and recent edits user profile action redundant. Since the next release of the Bubbles plugin (1.4) will only support Confluence 2.10.2+ it would seem silly to promote this functionality to new users when Confluence will support similar functionality natively in the next version. For this reason the Bubbles my-recent-edits macro and profile action will be deprecated in 1.4.

What is actually going to change?

The my-recent-edits macro and recent edits profile tab will be disabled by default for new plugin installations. This change has been released today with the latest 1.4-m3 development release.

What If I currently use the Bubbles {my-recent-edits} macro?

That's ok, you will still be able to use this macro. It will just be disabled by default when you first install the plugin. A Confluence administrator will need to enable that module if you want to use it. After a few releases this functionality may be removed, but we'll provide some warning before that happens.
