This is not new (it's just a tip for AdSense users). If I remember well, the feature has been available since September, when Picasa Web didn't need an invitation.

Really? Whoops – I could have sworn people had tried to embed links to Picasaweb in the forums and it didn't work... Sorry!

From September:

"You can also embed photos and albums into blogs, even though this feature still needs some work."

Why is AdSense pimping Picasa all of a sudden?

Is it too late for me to change my post to:

"Adsense blog mysteriously reposts Picasaweb announcement from September"?

Next time, more research before posting!

I embedded that gadget, but it didn't do anything remotely cool... e.g. it didn't fade through the different pics of my album. It just displayed a static album cover image with link. Where's the gadget factor in that?
