This patch adds the option to have the dockables behave like drawers as in MacOSX. This looks nice and is really useful because a drawer extends to the outside and does not make your central edit pane smaller when opening a dockable.
There are two new options for the View (global options):
- enable drawers (by default off which resembles the old style)
- use drawers only for left and right (popping them up at the top or bottom is usualy not very helpful since there is probably no space left between jedit's window and the screen border on typical screens today)
The implementation uses JDrawer  of the iSQL application and is released under the MPL. I have added some modifications to the code (bug fix and new option). The code was taken from koders . JDrawer is completely based on Swing and thus works on any OS supported by Java/Swing.
