Description Marco Carrai 2009-06-26 12:07:16 UTC
Version:           2.2-SVN (using 4.2.93 (KDE 4.2.93 (KDE 4.3 >= 20090623)) "release 1", KDE:KDE4:UNSTABLE:Desktop / openSUSE_11.0)
Compiler:          gcc
OS:                Linux (i686) release

In Amarok context view you can order applets as you want by using the downside button located at the bottom of the context view. It would be more user-friendly to be able to move applet like we do for icons or plasma's applets. ( Holding left mouse button and moving to another place ). In my first impact i found strange changing context view's buttons order to change applet order. Also because button are moved horizontally and applet are move vertically, there's no a common "direction".

Pushed by markey into branch 'master'.

Improve usability of applet toolbar drag'n'drop.

Before, dnd was done by clicking, moving, releasing, which is
not how dnd usally works. Now it works by keeping the mouse button
pressed, and then releasing at target position.

Also we now change the mouse cursor during drag operation.
