Hi there,

I've documented these new properties, creating new pages and updating support information as appropriate:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/PointerEvent
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/PointerEvent/PointerEvent
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/PointerEvent/tangentialPressure
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/PointerEvent/twist

I have not put a note in the Fx54 release notes about it however, as I believe pointer events are still preffed off — correct?

Let me know if my descriptions read OK. Thanks!

Yes, they are. They will be shipped in bug 960316.

We decided earlier[1] to mark features as *not supported* as long as they are disabled by default and add the version that added support in the footnotes.
Can you please adjust the compat tables accordingly?
You may also add a note about the addition of this feature to the experimental features.[3]

Thanks Sebastian. I've adjusted the compat tables, and added a further note to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Experimental_features
Great! Thanks for the quick fix, Chris!
