Some useful features have been available using the v2 API.
- App-specific gesture settings (iberianpig/fusuma-plugin-appmatcher)
- Mac OS style three-finger drag
- Windows-style 3-finger swipe to switch windows

I will write a series of articles about these configuration details.
↓ BTW, I realized that three-finger drag was really useful after I implemented it.
Some configs have already been added to the fusuma Wiki.
Anyone can edit this Fusuma Wiki.
It also contains settings for various distributions or WM(Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pop!_OS, KDE, i3...). If you find any valuable configurations, please share them on Fusuma Wiki. I look forward to seeing new tips.
