Xwidget, next task to popularise it furtherThe next task to popularise Xwidget further is to convince the non-widgeteers out there that Xwidget is a usable alternative to other products. There is no other supported widget engine in development now that allows you to create non-square, non-traditional apps with fully transparent backgrounds. These are still very rare in the whole world of desktop development. It can be done using 3GLs on Windows but it requires serious coding and is complex. Xwidget does it easily and by default. This is a major selling point for Xwidget that the world does not yet really understand.
In addition, Xwidget is underselling itself. It sells itself as a widget engine but in fact it is a lot more than that.

What is this Pre-Version about? This is a valid question that you may be asking yourself and that I will do a little to try and answer.

Tony created Xwidgets on the PC and Android and he did this all by himself. Other widget engines were created by teams of developers.

Tony had to abandon Xwidget development in order to make money to live.
Xwidgets almost died due to the absence of the developer and so we had no updates for close to three years. Jim King kept Xwidgets alive by she
