(Just to inject a dose of reality:)
No. It's not that fancy yet. The only changes so far are:
1. The _initial_ RecentChanges page is automatically generated (upon load-up
of a virgin wiki), rather than being read from pgsrc.
2. We've made RecentChanges locked by default, so that malicious
users can't edit it to hide their tracks.
It would be nice to make the page dynamically generated. When/if
that happens, it would also be easy/nice to be able to generate
RecentChanges in other formats, like RDF. My personal reasons
for this, is that I'd like to see a unified recent changes page
which merges the recent changes from several different wikis.
