Just saw this over at Arstechnica, a Microsoft employee Shinobu Takahashi, shows some features in one of the latest Windows 7 internal builds, 7068. I can’t tell exactly what’s being said on the page, except for the fact that it has something to do with DPI scaling improvements in Windows 7. However, build 7068 shows that Microsoft is continuing to tweak the OS as it approaches Release Candidate (speculated to be coming in late May), in particular, Desktop Gadgets will be receiving a refresh.

As you can see, there is a new Date and Time Gadget, CPU/Memory Meter and Battery Meter Gadgets. The Windows 7 Beta (build 7000) released back in January, still features Gadgets introduced in Vista, along with a new Media Center Gadget. Windows 7 Gadgets support new features such as enlarging, ability to be placed anywhere on the desktop.
