I’ve updated my Countdown plugin to add a new feature in addition to a few minor changes.

Thanks to Denis de Bernardy, Countdown has widget support. If you use a theme that supports widgets, you can install Countdown and use the widget interface to position the Countdown output. The widget controls allow you to specify the title of the area and number of events to show. Use the regular Options page for Countdown to set the standard options including the event dates themselves.

It should be easier than ever to add upcoming recurring events to your site output.
