Hi Smile
I'm often checking via Software Update if new software is available.
I wonder if it's possible to make a widget that checks for new software without opening Software Update.

Something I really would like to see, is a DashboardWidgets.com Widget.
Until now I used the DifferentDistrict widget to get the RSS feed from this site, but on the RSS site the updates aren't shown. The widget should reload when Dashboard is activated or a button on it is pressed. All in the layout of DashboardWidgets.com
It would be a very useful widget to see which new widgets are out Very Happy

Another widget like the Desktops widget, with the difference that if you drop an image on it, the desktop picture will be changed to the dropped one.

I hope some of those ideas are possible, keep on the good work everyone Very Happy

I can tell you that we are indeed working on a DBW widget though I don't know when it will be available.

For the desktop widget, however, I think that already exists:
