The only change in version 2.5 is a redesigned launch-message. The Countdown Widget (Lite) now displays the appropriate screenshots and text-messages automatically - depending on the version of the Android-OS your smartphone is running on.
Thanks to some user-feedback, I noticed that there have been some layouting-issues in prior versions on Tablets, eg Google's Nexus 10. These are now fixed in Countdown Widget 2.4!In 2.2 & 2.3 already gone live:
The famous Countdown Widget recently received two updates!
With version 2.0 there comes a major redesign of the Configuration-Activity: it's now in 'what-you-see-is-what-you-get'-style (aka WYSIWYG). That means, that while you configure your favourite event, you can already see how it will look like on your homescreen. Besides of this great benefit for you, the new design will make it more easy to add further configuration settings in the future.
Version 2.1's main feature is the support of the German language in the configuration screen as well as in the Widget itself.

The not so good news: Countdown Widget won't be available for download on this page anymore. You can find it in Google's Play Store now. Countdown Widget Lite will be available for free, Countdown Widget will cost 0.89 €.
The difference between LITE and the regular Countdown Widget? Here's a fancy table:
Good news, guys! Event Timer Widget 2.0 is available for Download!
And I have even better news for you! This release contains the most requested feature of all:
You don't have to own an Android Smartphone >= 4.0 anymore to enjoy the great Event Timer Widget! The Widgets now work on Android 2.x as well!
Besides of that, I decided to make the Widget visible in the list of your installed Apps, because not seeing it there led to quite a bit of confusion. Nevertheless, your events still cannot be created with an App-launch - an appropriate message will appear instead with further instructions on how to do that.
Hopefully, all questions are answered in the Event Timer Widget FAQs.
Nevertheless, here's a short summary of what you can do with it ...
