New panning options, gestures support in Windows 7

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.
