I would have included the picture but I'm using IE for this and digging through the source just doesn't appeal to me right now. :| I'm slowly realizing that I still want to use Firefox. Hopefully he gets this new unlock tool out soon. ... -gestures/

Also protected and swept under the carpet, in the Windows 7 PDC ‘08 build (6801), is the ability to configure touch-based panning and gesture options. This is a no-brainer as Microsoft already announced Windows 7 will feature Microsoft Surface technologies, of which panning is a critical piece. A document was also released yesterday entitled “Developer Enhancements to Windows for Touch and Tablet” with a confirmatory blurb:

Multitouch will support input from multiple touch sources through new window messages, plus a gesture-recognition API that supports panning, zooming, and rotating.

Really cool - I wonder what else is going to be found hidden within 6801...turns out its a lot more interesting build than we all originally thought :)
