Wacom has just published the latest build of its Feel driver for both EMR and Active ES devices.

Wacom did not provide any new documentation for this build, but the primary purpose of this release is to add support for recently released devices and pens. The following screenshots are from pre-release build 7.3.4-6, taken on the Huawei Matebook

The Feel driver provides Wintab support for those programs that require it for pressure sensitivity. The driver also provides advanced features like button configuration, calibration and tip sensitivity adjustment.

The new Feel driver update adds support for recently released devices like the Huawei MateBook. When the driver senses a recognized pen, the image and available features are updated. For Bluetooth pens like the MatePen, a link is provided to the control panel within Settings.

New Anniversary Update features like the Ink Workspace can now be assigned to pen buttons.

The Feel driver's radial menu can also house shortcuts to new Anniversary Update features.

I tested a pre-release on all my Active ES devices and only ran into an issue with the Toshiba Encore 2 Write, which lost touch capability until I uninstalled the driver.

To properly install the latest driver, it's recommended that you first uninstall older versions and reboot. After installing, the driver will require a second reboot.

As a reminder, the Feel driver is only for Wacom products. The following is quoted from their site:

This driver should be installed on tablets that have Wacom feel IT technologies or Wacom Pen based technologies. This build ISD_7.3.4-8 supports recently released tablets. Please note that Surface Pro 3 and Surface Pro 4 are not tablets with Wacom feel IT technologies and the driver should not be installed on Surface Pro 3 or Surface Pro 4.
