On November 9 the W3C published the First Public Working Draft of the  
Widgets 1.0 specification and the 2nd Working Draft of the widgets'  
requirements document:

The Web Application Formats Working Group has released the First  
Public Working Draft of Widgets 1.0. Also known as gadgets or  
modules, widgets are small programs like clocks, stock tickers, news  
casters, games and weather forecasters that display and update remote  
data and run on the Web browser environment. The specification  
defines the packaging format, manifest file and scripting interfaces  
for downloading and installation on client machines. Also published,  
the requirements document has been updated and retitled.
