I'm guessing that quite a lot of us got one of these today. I got three. Now forgive me for being daft but none of the widgets I've made involve any sort of plug-in unless it is regarding opening Safari.

"Your widget has been found to reference either a Widget Plug-in or an Internet Plug-in so action must be taken to ensure that your Widget runs natively on these new models."

What does this mean? Do I actually have to do something different? Or is this just an e-mail they are sending out to everyone regardless of what the widget does.

Which widget(s) are yours? Do you use <embed> anywhere, or specify the AllowInternetPlugins tag in your Info.plist?

I've used AllowInternetPlugins for RSS feeds and accessing information via the internet.
My question would be what it is that I am supposed to do with them to make them compliant.
No doubt Apple has more info on this somewhere, but I though someone here might have some experience with this.

If you're just using XMLHttpRequest in JavaScript then you want the AllowNetworkAccess key, not AllowInternetPlugins. AllowInternetPlugins is for using the <embed> tag to play quicktime movies and such.

Apple probably saw that key in your plist and assumed you were using a plug-in, and sent you the email to make sure said plug-in was universal.
