Correct, this feature was added to the gui-release branch. The version 3.8.x  is built from the stable branch.

I believe it'll only be available in version 4.

Please excuse me for disturbing, but dragging editor tabs doesn't work on my installation:

MXE Octave 3.8.1-4 => Qt version 4.8.6
Windows 7, 64 bit

(The patch says: "Check whether the Qt QTabWidget::setMovable() function exists. This function was added in Qt 4.5.")

Might this be a regression? Or Windows only?

limits the tab width and makes the max. width configurable.

Thanks for the suggestion.

please see screenshot attached.
there are only three tabs visible,
because their size was expanded
so as to fit the entire file path.
I wish I could resize the tab,
potentially truncating the title
(keeping it right-justified).

No the size can't be changed by the user.
What exactly do you mean by "resize-to-fit"?

also makes tabs resizable?

when Preference "show full path in the tab title" is enabled, tabs resize-to-fit makes them too wide.

so that the order of files opened in the Editor can be rearranged, from left to right.
