What's new in DesktopShelves version 1.4?

This version comes withe top three requested features:

  1. Adjustable shelf sizes
  2. Adjustable space between shelf items
  3. Sortable shelves
  4. Bonus: drag and drop between shelves

A few people had reported problems where DesktopShelves once in a while would stop responding ("beach ball syndrome"). This should be fixed now, too.

Below are a few impressions of the new features.
