I don't really get the meaning of this sentence. Does it mean something like "it is spontaneous"? Or should it be "it was recent"?
Hello. Let me put in a context for you. "Você conseguiu esse trabalho antes de nos conhecermos?" (Did you get this job before we met?) The answer: "Sim, mas é recente." (Yes, but it's recent, which it means that didn't happen long time ago).
