#26895 new enhancement

Deprecate recently_edited option

recently_edited option is being set when a plugin or a theme file is edited by the builtin Editor.
A search, in the WordPress 3.8 source code, tells me that the option is never being read.
I suggest that we deprecate that option and replace it by an action where plugins can hook and get the value of the edited file.

I think keeping this is potentially useful information we may wish to use at a later point, and something that core probably could use, too.

At least fix the option so that the paths it contains are relative to the install folder rather than absolute for the local file system.

@maximinime can you comment on the benefits there will be if this is changed from absolute? I was trying to figure out the pros/cons and I am thinking the main time this would change is if you switch hosting providers. In that case I was thinking it may be a good thing to know which file was changed(before or after).

I'm not a fan of storing absolute paths when it's not required. Given that this option always contains a file that is in or below the web root, it makes sense to refer to the same file when migrating servers, rather than having a potentially invalid path.
