So now that Tiger is out does anyone know if the Dashboard SDK is included on the DVD?

If not does anyone have a download link or documentation on how to bundle the widgets once they are written.

I'm not, I can check the DEV tools when i get home, but the SDK was originally only for paying ADC members.

However, there IS a plugin for DEV tools on www.macupdate.com that I hear is very useful to create Widgets. Practically an SDK of its own right, and very detailed too.

Do you mean http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/17783?

If so that's what I've been looking at, really I just need to know how to bundle up the widget, can anyone shed any light on the process?

use spotlight and look for widgets. xcode comes with a tutorial that is the same on that the link above points too.

"And, there's a Dashboard SDK that helps you get up to speed as quickly as possible. ADC Members can find the Dashboard SDK in the "Downloads: Developer Tools" section of the ADC Member Site."

From the link you posted. ;)

Although as it explains, you don't really need it.
