Just a small update - Lancelot’s library received a great improvement - support for dropping the items into the lists. Although this doesn’t seem much, since L’s widgets are all totally custom-made and generally speaking implemented from scratch, trust me, it is :)

The first improvement noticeable to the outside world, that is, to you beloved users is that the Favourites list can now be reordered by simple drag and drop. And that you can add items to the Favourites by drag and drop.

(just imagine a mouse cursor dragging the Kontact item…)

p.s. This has reminded me, I’ve really got to make a new Lancelot screencast soon…

You can support my work on , or you can get my book Functional Programming in C++ at if you're into that sort of thing.
