    Windows support

    The Windows downloads are labeled as Boot Camp updates. Do they work on regular PCs? Do they support gestures?

    Added features for MacBook/MacBook Pro

    You can now use inertial scrolling and 3 finger dragging. Pretty handy. Check the support page to find out if it covers your Mac.

    No handwriting recognition support?

    It seems that the new trackpad doesn't support handwriting recognition. What is that? It is an essential feature for a lot of oversea Macbook users.

    handwriting

    Years ago with 10.2 or 10.3, Apple touted this great 'new' technology built-in to OS X. It's called Ink. And it is still there. And it does handwriting recognition. And you would think that, one day, Apple might actually try to utilize it for some purpose.
