Aside from new lenses and other features coming to the Unity desktop during the Ubuntu 13.04 development cycle, Canonical will also be making a push for widgets to happen on Ubuntu's Unity desktop.

A brief session was held today at the Ubuntu 13.04 Developers' Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark about Unity widgets.

A widget mechanism with a formal Unity widget API will be delivered for Ubuntu 13.04. There's still lots of decisions to be made, such as whether these widgets will be constructed in HTML5/JavaScript or Qt, but more details should be forthcoming in the near future. Unfortunately the slides for this Unity widget support aren't currently available on the Internet but should surface shortly.
