Microsoft in week news, Microsoft released updated to its Surface 2.0 SDK and Runtime, to include improved support for Windows Touch Enabled devices. "There were some issues in the Microsoft Surface Input Stack handling of reports sent by a digitizer in serial mode. These issues caused the input stack to not report all touches reported by the digitizer reliably. The new build handles input from serial and parallel/hybrid digitizer more robustly," informed Surface team.
Adding the team said if you are building applications that will run on Windows 7 touch enabled PCs, you use this update.
Those who are new, "With the Microsoft Surface 2.0 SDK, you can easily create applications to take advantage of the next generation Surface computing device. The applications you create can be adapted for other Windows 7 touch-enabled devices as well."
