Gimp with Surface?
Some number of years ago, one of the newer versions of the surface came with some new API for their pen, instead of using the API that Wacom made.
This made it it so that GIMP would not work with the new surface, or rather, using a pen had the same functionality as a mouse, and didn't respond to features like pen pressure.

This was a number of years ago.  I am curious how things stand now.  Has GIMP been updated to work with this microsoft pen API?  Or has Microsoft reverted back to using the Wacom API?  Or, since the latest Surface runs windows 10, has someone developed a way to install the Wacom API onto a surface so that programs that respond to it can be used?

Or is there some other reasonable workaround that lets people use pen pressure in GIMP on a Surface?
