New and Improved Plugins

Improved Support for Drag and Drop

There are several improvements to Drag and Drop:

  • Ability to rearrange the "Open" sidebar panel and the tag dropdown (and new tiddlers can be opened by dragging them to the list)
  • Ability to reorder entries in tag dropdowns
  • Dragging a tag pill is now equivalent to dragging all of the tagged tiddlers together
  • Entries in the control panel "Appearance"/"Toolbars" tab can be reordered by drag and drop
  • The image shown while dragging now reflects the dragged item, instead of being a generic drag pill

New "Heavier" Theme

A new theme called "Heavier" thickens TiddlyWiki's default lightweight fonts. A variant "Tight-Heavier" combines the "Heavier" theme with the existing "Tight" theme:
