Allow launchers/tasks/applets to be positioned anywhere on the dock

Registered by Pascal Dürsteler on 2008-07-13

At the moment, there are three types of things in awn. We got the launchers, the applets and the running applications / open folders. The active apps and the applets/launchers are apart from each other (except a running app is a launcher), that means you can't mix them which is senseful.

What i'm missing is that you can mix the order of launchers and applets. At the moment, you just can insert applets before or after the "Launcher/Taskmanager" applet (which includes the launchers if i've understood that right). Before means bevore all launchers and after means after the actual opened doc's / running apps. I'd prefer to putt these applets between my launchers or after the launchers and before the running apps list.

An idea would be to merge launchers and applets and just provide two buttons, "add launcher" and "add applet" ind the awn-manager. They all will be treated like the same and someone has not to mess around with the order.
