XBox 360 Contoller Support Panda3D 1.10

I cant tell if joystick support been inplemented into the recent windows devel downloads and im just too new to panda to find how to use it, or if its just not commited yet. Does anyone know if/how one can start using native controller support in Panda? I am really hoping to avoid pygame and the like since ive already done a lot in them and am trying to learn how panda deals with these. I would also apreciate insight into how controller support will be implemented, if its not, so i could start figuring it out. Thanks in advance.

The work is currently in the input-overhaul branch, and more work is yet in this branch that has yet to be reviewed and merged. The latter branch also includes a sample program.
