How do I use a {recently-updated} macro to always show results for the currently-logged-in user?

I see how I can type a specific user's name, but I just want it to always show results for content recently edited by the currently logged in user. Is there a way to do this?

What Joseph said. Wrap the recently-updated macro in a user macro for the same ends.

In Confluence 4.x, something like:

<ac:macro ac:name="recently-updated">
	<ac:parameter ac:name="author">$action.remoteUser.name</ac:parameter>
</ac:macro>

In Confluence 3.x, something like:

{recently-updated:author=$action.remoteUser.name}

The macro doesn't have the ability to show content for the 'current user' built-in.

You could achieve this by creating a new user macro that wraps the recently-updated macro, passing in the current user as the macro parameter.
