Movable Type 4.0 brought with it a stunning new dashboard which contained a number of default widgets which painted a picture of your system (from posting and commenting activity of blogs to quick links to tools). Personally, being the only author of all my blogs (thus writing all the entries and receiving notifications of all comments), the default Blog Stats widget was of little use to me. What I really missed was Movable Type 3's dashboard which listed all the blogs in the system with a number of handy links to the most frequently used areas.

Thankfully, the new dashboard is completely extensible so I wrote a quick retro widget for Movable Type 4, My Blogs which brings back the old dashboard.
