Mesa Dynamics has released a new version of its Amnesty Widget Browser, software which lets Mac users run Apple widgets without using Dashboard.

Version 1.1 offers a new transformation feature that allows users to change the size and rotation of any widget. These can be scaled from 50 per cent to 150 per cent of their normal size and turned at any angle around their centre point.  The update also includes an improved widget engine.
A 30-day trial version is available. The software requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later (Mac OS X 10.4 or later is recommended). It costs $19.95.
