I think that Three Finger Gestures should be more stable, but I am unsure. I will play around with it this evening after work

Still can't get the 3 stuff working.
(Should it work in Safari like 3 fingers on pad and swipe left or right?)

Beside of that, everything is ok.
Sound after sleep is working fine.

Cheers for the feed back

Just for the record the last 'touchpad' drivers (which I'm using now) work using 2 finger & 3 finger gestures as well as drag n lock & work excellent. I just thought that Meklort stated that he had added some to the drivers in this RC though thinking about it he probably meant 'stabilised' them

The touchpad changes are mostly under the hood.
1) Edgescrolling works
2) very minot tweaks to the touchpad algorithm, probably won't have any visible changes.
3) Touchpad now inserts information about itself into the IORegistery. This include the capabilities, model, version, etc.

Number three is so that I can have the preference pan detect what features are supported adn adjust the options available to the user accordingly.
Unfortunately, I lost the latest version on of the pref pane (never committed it to google code), so I'll have to update the gui. The code's already been modified to take advantage of the information provided by the touchpad, but again, it's not included in this version because the gui needs fixing.

I haven't gotten around to making three finger gestures better, but that'll happen soon. You *can* use three finger gestures and edge scrolling at the same time, you don't have to use two finger gestures.

i had a OS X 10.6 USB stick set up with .8.3 RC2. I ran NBM .8.3 RC3 to update it but now it will not boot. I get to the grey apple screen but the spinning gear wheel never stops and after a few seconds the data LED on the USB stick stops flashing. Any ideas please?

For three finger swiping, adjust the threshold to the right for it to work.

can somebody please confirm...

Does Drag Lock work on mini 9? I can't seem to get it to function.

Other feedback (re:trackpad on mini 9) Edge scrolling back but when I select it I find two finger clicking doesn't work. Personally I get on pretty well with two-fingered scroll.

Hey there, meklort . Thanks for the rc3. Ran it post rc2 install of SL using NBI and all is well thus far. No microphone yet, but in due time . . .

Great release Meklort!

Confirmed everything working as expected. Edge scrolling is pretty cool.

One minor issue:

1. Restart still doesn't work (10v, SL, BT enabled, USB Legacy disabled, USB Wake enabled)

Some things that may be my imagination:

1. Wifi seems to take a little longer to come back after sleep

2. "Dell" Bios startup screen seems like it takes a little longer to pop up on initial power up.

Wow, cant believe there aren't more people jumping on this?
