About Google gadgets on plasma

,----[ Quote ]
| I am a developer of google gadgets for linux (GGL). I've read your blog post
| about ggl. We are very interested in integrating GGL with plasma. Actually,
| we have written some code which can let Google gadgets running as plasmoids.
| These code implement a script engine and a package engine, almost as you
| described in your blog.
| After KDE's WoC integration, we decided to stop working on it till things
| calm down. Now the first beta of KDE 4.1 was just out. I think it's the
| right time to start it again. We'll make these code work again and then
| release it to public.
| We are looking forward to more cooperation with KDE's team.


Google Gadgets open-sourced for Linux

| Google has announced the official release of Desktop Gadgets for Linux and is
| distributing the source code under the open-source Apache software license.
| Although there are still bugs and the implementation is not yet entirely
| complete, it works well enough for day-to-day use.


A short preview of Google Gadgets for Linux

| With Google Gadgets, we get the best of both worlds: A solution backed by a
| big company with many Gadgets already out there and something that is open
| source. Additionally, it’s the only product right now working on all three
| major platforms, which might turn out as the feature that makes this the
| de-facto standard. A sign that Google is serious about this is the fact that
| you can build this against GTK, like I did, but also against Qt, so there is
| integration for KDE aswell.

| Since releasing Google Desktop for Linux, we've added almost all of our most
| requested features, like 64-bit support and the ability to search
| applications and documents. All except one major exception: Desktop Gadgets.
| Gadget support is not just a single feature, but rather an entire platform
| for miniature applications. It's a complex undertaking, but we're now putting
| the finishing touches on the product.
