So CM10.1 users have to wait for a CM update to get this? This version seems to have more options than the one I'm already using in CM10.1.

Today's nightly will have the exact same functionality. It was merged last night. I plan to keep them in sync.

Great work.

You should add settings option for maximized lock screen and long press unlock.

Can this be also ported to 4.1.2 ?

Like latinime.apk and gallery.apk

Not without a lot of work. The digital clock component is a new feature built into android 4.2.

I will have to back port it for the widget to work on 4.x and then it would only support home screen in any case since earlier versions of Android did not have lock screen widgets.

I'm not sure it is worth the effort to maintain two versions.

I think it would not only support home screen widgets but also lock widgets since both cm and aokp have the option to add all widgets on lock but i don't know in much about the app so your decision is final..
