With the next build coming next week we'll provide API that will support migration of custom widgets. You'll be required to implement a class that returns a Sitefinity 4 widget from a given 3.7 widget type. We'll also provide functionality for automatic coping of the properties if the interfaces of both the 3.7 and Sitefinity 4 widgets are the same.
