We ended support for this gadget in Confluence 7.0
The gadget no longer appears in the macro browser and can't be added to a page.
Any gadget already on a page, or used in another application like Jira, will still work.

The activity stream gadget is similar to the recently updated macro and shows a list of the most recently changed content within your Confluence site.

In addition to showing a list of most recently changed content, the activity stream gadget also groups activities by separate date, and provides an RSS feed link to its content in the top-right corner.
