Feedburner adds Dashboard Widget Support?

For a couple of weeks now the TechWrap has had a Dashboard Widget that I made using Dashcode. That widget is a basic RSS feed that I made using Feedburner. Since that time though I have not been able to see any statistics for how many subscribers there were etc.

This morning I was checking my account when I noticed that the Widget RSS feed I made now has actual stats. When I looked at the RSS reader it said this:

" Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/418 (KHTML, like Gecko)"

I'm 100% positive that this is for widgets and I am happy to see that Feedburner has added widget support. I've never had any problems with Feedburner so I presuming that this is not a fluke but real support for Dashboard.

If you want the TechWrap widget then download it here. If you don't know what RSS is then go here.
