Cre.ations.net's Nate True has posted a blog entry revealing some of the hidden changes he found in the 1.1.3 firmware.

Key changes found:
- SpringBoard no longer needs to be modified (via SummerBoard) in order to show extra applications in the /Applications folder.
- All applications now run as the user 'mobile' instead of as root.
- Preferences are now stored in /var/mobile rather than in /var/root.

He concludes that the iPhone is already capable of running official third party applications. He also notes that the SpringBoard application appears to have widget support having found a class called SBWidgetApplication.
