Wacom releases new driver
Wacom Technology on Monday posted a new driver for Mac OS X that supports the USB versions of its Intuos3, Intuos2, Intuos, CintiqPartner, Graphire2 (ET-0405A) and Graphire pen tablets as well as its Cintiq 21UX, 18SX, 15x, and PL-500 pen displays. In addition to expanded support, Wacom also implemented a new Pan/Scroll option for the pen buttons that enables users to drag the pen tip across the tablet to pan or scroll the current document in any direction. The driver resolves several miscellaneous issues, and the company is welcoming bug reports. The new Wacom driver requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and Intel-based Mac owners require driver 4.96 or later.
