Information coming from the XWidget community has flared up a little in recent days.
News of XWidget version 2.0 has been released. Hints indicate XWidget will get a new icon.
Will this be the new icon for XWidget?
It is to be expected that version 2.0 will be released this coming March.
Change’s for XWidget appear to be what has been missing from the current version 1.93. A buggy version is no ones want. A 90 percent code improvement is something to get excited about.
Here’s the list of the coming changes:
– Support GPU hardware acceleration, reduces CPU usage, more smooth animation.
– Support 3D layer with smooth animation.
– New UI, more easy to use.
– New scripting engine, lighter and faster.
– New widget editor.
everyone will be able to create and modify the core’s source code.
– Support embed one widget into another widgets as a component.
– More stability and Faster.
In total there will be more that 90% of the code rewritten to improve the stability of the underlying.

Many at the XWidget forum are eagerly awaiting for the new version, we’ll just have to continue to see if the new version release will arrive on time.
Personally I’m looking forward to the new version. XWidgets potential is something to put faith in. It really can help your desktop enhancement experience.
But, you still can create and or run the default widgets without any .js file.
I tested XWidget with the online virus scanner www.virustotal.com, over a dozen anti-virus engines
passed the freeware program. However, when I installed it onto my system, AVG detected XWidget as a virus. I allowed the program to install, knowing this was a false positive.
For now what we have is version 18.104.22.1682, you can get it here – www.XWidget.com
And if you like you can download the Star Trek Starfleet Folder Launcher widget I created for my new collection of personally made widgets.
