The SoTD now contains:
The Widget specifications became W3C Recommendations in 2012-2013. They 
were designed to enable interactive single purpose application for 
displaying and/or updating local data or data on the Web, packaged in a 
way to allow a single download and installation on a user's machine or 
mobile device.

Since 2013, Widgets has had limited deployment and its usage has been 
reduced since then. Service Workers and Web App Manifest are considered 
to provide better solutions nowadays.

All Members who responded to the Call for Review [1] showed support.

This announcement follows section 7.1.2 [2] of the W3C Process Document.

Thank you,

For Tim Berners-Lee, Director,
Ralph Swick, Architecture and Technology Lead, and
Philippe Le Hégaret, Project Management Lead;
Xueyuan Jia, W3C Marketing & Communications
