Apple has informed developers that the shiny new Multi-Touch gestures for the iPad will not be launching in the public release of iOS 4.3. They say these gestures are simply a developer preview, for now, to see how they work with the iPad’s third-party-apps. iOS 5, perhaps?

This feature will not be enabled in iOS 4.3 for customers, but we are providing this preview to gather input on how these gestures work with your apps.
