On March 31 a new WD of the Widgets 1.0 Digital Signature spec was  
published and announced on the W3C's home page:

2009-03-31: The Web Applications Working Group has published a  
Working Draft of Widgets 1.0: Digital Signatures. This document  
defines a profile of the XML Signature Syntax and Processing 1.1  
specification to allow a widget package to be digitally signed.  
Widget authors and distributors can digitally sign widgets as a trust  
and quality assurance mechanism. Prior to instantiation, a user agent  
can use the digital signature to verify the integrity of the widget  
package and perform source authentication. This document specifies  
conformance requirements on both widget packages and user agents.

Please review this new WD as soon as possible, preferably within the  
next two weeks:


-Regards, Art Barstow
