Deprecated RecentItems functionallity in OS10 and OS11

  

In OS10 and OS11 the following related objects (and the RecentItems entity) are deprecated:

The message at the bottom advises to consider creating a simular webclock (and actions) in a difference eSpace.

I have the following questions:

  1. Why is this deprecated?
  2. Is there a plan to actually remove the recent items functionallity in a future OS version?

Regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,


1. Why is this deprecated?

We are deprecating that block because it uses shared state between applications (and it was not used a lot). This being said, it should be pretty trivial to replicate it in a different eSpace. If you need help with this please let me know.

2. Is there a plan to actually remove the recent items functionality in a future OS version?

We don't have concrete plans, but since it has been deprecated for 2 versions already, the time you invest in making this change should pay back later, when upgrading to a future version.


Cheers,
Tiago Simões
