Third Party Blog Feed Gadgets Stopped Working

Recently, we're seeing a number of problem reports in Blogger Help Forum: Something Is Broken, about various gadgets that display content from the blog and comments feeds.
My Recent Posts (Recent Comments, Popular Posts) gadgets aren't displaying!
From the reports, this appears to be happening with gadgets installed using "Add a Gadget", from the "Featured" list.

We're seeing third party feedback that the problem may be with some common Blogger code, that has simply stopped working.
There is a specific object for Blogger gadgets called google.Blog that holds a bunch of information about each blog (so that users don't have to enter it during gadget setup, stuff like the blog's URL and the URL to its feeds). That object has suddenly stopped working for some reason.
The implication here is that Blogger Support has been notified, by the Blogger Developers group.

So now, we wait patiently.
