You know I wanted to link to okra's article on the new gadget API, its advantages, and so on. But that blog was hosted on a Samsung website and is gone forever not even on the Wayback machine I think the new API had the advantage of sandboxing the modules which is IMHO great. Meanwhile, a number of new modules/gadgets designed utilizing the New Api are of course killed by this change with e24 being the last e-version they will compile and run on. This includes a really great weather module. And more.
However, I never did learn the new API, but put such a task on my todo list. Now I suppose I can remove it.
