Hi List,

After being quiet for some time about the status on this extension I have
nevertheless been actively continuing the development. Now I am happy to let
you know that I published an updated version, with the proposed popup menu and
with a (simple) manual.

I am now going to work on the visual feedback for users to know that they have
actually grabbed a page and are dragging it.

But in the meantime could I please ask for some more feedback on this updated
version of the extension ? Do you like it, is it useful, any additional
features missing ?

I really would like to keep it the simplest possible. Not because of lack of
skills to develop it further, but I believe that it is a nice userfriendliness
tool and should not be extend to a monster extension. Keep it simple...

As with any new piece of software, be careful with using new releases of
extensions, and this one is no exception to the rule.
