Great improvements, specifically "clicking on a selected tab of a non-active pane will activate it" and "Added support for dragging panel tabs between left and right sides." Very cool!

For the improvement "Create Directory action now uses a name of a focused directory as an initial value.":
I'm wondering whether you would also want to build this into the "New Folder..." action.
(I prefer the New Folder action over the create directory action because of the more "lightweight" UI)

There's a trick with the New Folder action: you're actually calling two operations there:
1) creation of a directory like "untitled folder" or "untitled folder 2" etc.
2) renaming it into something meaningful.
I'm not so sure that using name of a focused directory, instead of "untitled folder", will fit into this scheme.

Ah, you're right, doesn't make sense when it is two-step, create+rename.
On the other side the "New Folder..." action could be a pure UI one with a single filesystem step.
Anyway, guess I'll just switch to the "Create directory..." action, the prefilled text is more beneficial to me than that other "lightweight" UI :)

This build works fine for me. Especially the tab-dragging between panels is a nice feature. Looking forward to the RC with floating QuickLook :)
