    I've always been the real fan of your tools, Vlad. The new version of your driver for Windows 8 just rocks! I received rMBP a few days ago and made a clean install of the full retail Windows 8 as suggested and put BootCamp drivers for Windows 7. Then I've put Power Plan Assist and Trackpad++. Everything's working like charm. As always with your beautiful tools, Vlad! And the edge-gesures are so native, my congrats for making this possible!!!

     

    Just one feature request, if you don't mind: Please add a dragging with 3 fingers. That would be soooo awesome!

    I think till you can implement a pinch and zoom gesture, three finger zoom must stay!! And I don't miss 3 finger dragging anyway.

     

    Vlad, I had an off-topic question for you. On your Windows on a Mac machines, does the Bluetooth work? For me, it just adds the device and nothing else. No way to transfer files or anything. Please let me know

    Well, I'm asking about file transfers and the like. I found a topic but that's for Windows 7 and it doesn't work on Windows 8. That's why I asked you

     

    Or, probably you could code a driver

    Now I realize, three-finger back/forward navigation is the feature I use most of all the Trackpad++ goods! And three-finger tap to open web tabs in background is brilliant, too! So I wouldn't sacrifice those for three-finger dragging! Now I realize! Thank you for explanation Vladimir!!

    Zoom is something I never use, so I'm using Autohotkey to map it to scrolling to top/bottom instead, but It's far from perfect with my workarounds for working on non-selected but hovered windows. It pretty much only works in the web browser, and not inside folders.

    Still hoping for an option to choose what to do with different gestures.

     

    Anyway, another feature request:

    Can you make tap-to-click to work in the Windows login screen?

    Also (just installed the new version so had to go through my settings again), I still need to invert the direction of

    4-finger gestures (which I don't use at all) in order to invert the vertical 3-finger gesture.

     

    And another question, since you mentioned doing something with the backlight:

    Could you make the backlight strength NOT dependent on whether AC is connected or not?

    More often than you'd think I'm in a dark room with the backlight at minimum, and then I need to charge the battery, and boom, the backlight goes to maximum (as that's what it was last time the power cord was connected) and I'm temporarily blind.

    Maybe a Power Plan Assistant feature?

    Hm, how is it Apple's fault? There are independent brightness controls under Power Options for "On battery" and "Plugged in", and they are independent for each power plan (High perf, Balanced, Power saver), so by default there are actually 6 independent brightness controls.

    So I wasn't really hoping for an Apple-specific fix, but more like an extra independent "hack"/fix for Microsoft's stupidity. I've been searching for a solution for a long time and found nothing...

    So yeah, it's a bit off-topic, but since you brought up the brightness control, I thought I'd mention it =).

    Hey Vladimir,

     

    It's me again! Any chance to utilize 5-finger gestures for something? In Windows 8! Just wondering. Thanks!

     

    K.R.,
