Just for clarification: will buttons accept multiple dropped files (to be passed as parameters to the button program)?

I have not decided how that should be handled yet.

There are three way to handle that. Open an instance of the program for every dropped file or send all files as parameters to the program or only accept the first of the dropped files.

Most program does not support opening multiple files. For example try dragging two files and dropping on Notepad then notepad will not open any of them.

I thinking that there need to be an option on the launch item where it can be configured how that item should handle multiple dropped files.

That is looking really good.

If I can add to Jungle's suggestion?
How about passing the selected files from both panels so that 'Comparison' programs like "WinMerge" can be called with both files as parameters.

I can't even imagine how that could be performed :) Maybe script action is a better way?

That would be a weird UI behavior. If it even would be possible to implement in a good way. But I agree with Jungle, That would work better as a script.

Here is a free iconset with about 2000 Icons (16x16+32x32), which cover nearly all functions :)

Yes.
V2.5 ended up using some of the FatCow icons. unfortunately they are only 16 and 32 sizes. but that has to be enough for now.
I would like to have more sizes in the future to support high DPI mode better.
