Well, actually, they did :-)

Since I know I'm going to buy them anyway, I went ahead and did it now - 
partly to see if that gives me more info about licensing, updates, 
documentations, etc.

In my purchase-receipt email from Livecode, it says:

which sounds like it really is still in Beta.

But then if I go to https://livecode.com/account/products/thirdparty I 
discover that I have v1.0.0 available to download - or I can pay a 
further $58 to upgrade to v0.5.0 !?

So I clicked on the download button, and got a zip/folder called 
"WidgetPackBeta"
Now I have a bunch of ".lce" files, one per widget, plus a 
WidgetPackInstaller.livecode

Running that gives me a dialog asking "install all" - click that gives 
me an error

stack "Widget Pack Installer": execution error at line 33 (Handler: 
can't find handler) near "revIDEExtensionInstall", char 1

so I guess I need to go read about installing widget extensions ...
