The updated widget doesn't run continuously whereas last version did. When activating play too run radar history, there is often an error messages about "can't load images". I don't recall getting this message before. I prefer the way it ran before where it continuously ran animation by default and updated automatically but you could manually refresh. Vs current widget requires activation to animate.
Also, transparent is not transparent. It was really cool when you could have the background image showing through. Updated widget is now opaque with transparent setting active
