I received a bunch of updates on a few of the bugs I submitted and when this usually happens it means that a new version is being rolled out.  It looks like the final version is here.

There is one MAJOR flaw with Microsoft’s IntelliPoint software and IE8, final build included.

If you use the accelerated scrolling feature within IntelliPoint, which I do, you will notice that your screen, upon scrolling, will go up and down.  The feature is basically crippled.

Microsoft informed me that they’ll talk to the right team and see if they can get it worked out.  In the mean time I doubt it will be worked out for the next 6-12 months.  I think I’ll stick with IE7 for now.
