Leave it to Reddit to spot the big news: As found by /u/ar25nan over on the Snoo-faced site, it seems Apple has finally added a much-wanted support feature to Boot Camp. That support would be for Windows Precision Touchpad, which allows users to make certain gestures via the touchpad to accomplish tasks more conveniently.

Tap or swipe with multiple fingers to access shortcuts, alternate windows, scroll, and perform a whole host of other useful features. That’s the benefit of Windows Precision Touchpad. And while it sounds relatively minor on the surface, it’s one of those things that, once you get used to, it’s hard to go back from.
