When list=allusers is used with auactiveusers, a property 'recenteditcount'
is returned in the result. In bug 67301 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, 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
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.

I have a question regarding the random articles generation in the API.
Let's say I'm using this URL to retrieve two random articles:
I got an API response which contains articles A and B in this order:
Is there a chance (I know it's very small, but it's just for my
understanding), that I'll get the exact articles but in the opposite order?
I'd like to know whether there is certain order for the random articles in
the API response, or it's also random.
