James, it's great to hear that they are giving some attention to the widgets area. I always find it difficult to keep track of all the text widgets I use over time. I like to switch them up and over the course of time I end up with 20 inactive text widgets but I have to preview them one by one to figure out which ones I want to reactivate. I wish they would let us name them on the backend. I'm sure there is a plugin out there but I think it should be part of the core.
Thanks for the heads up on what's coming next.
