How is it possible to configure google gadgets? I can select one gadget, but then, I do not have any access to the configuration of the available options... Each time we click on the configure icon, we come back to the selection of a gadget, but without the possibility to change or to setup any option...

I know this was working fine in 4.3.x of liferay, but now, I have done a fresh install of 5.0.1, and I see that there were some changes.

Maybe I missed something, but even in the wiki pages, I cannot find the information.

Same for me... It seems that the Google guys changed things on their side :-(
I'll try to fix that and post a workaround if it works...

UPDATE: some corrections have been provided by some folks on the support website. Thanks! That's here:
