from the site:
"Client or even tiling windows can be moved/dragged into a tile and
will be arranged according to the tile type. Every window can be
swapped too and shaded inside of it's parent tile."

imho it means it's drag 'n drop with mouse

well it's a different approach, for dragging you need to be able to
grab the window somewhere

i haven't tried it but the code seems simple (except the autotools build system)
also the statusbar is scriptable from lua, which is not as elegant or
unixish solution as the stdin in dwm

this is the first beta release so don't expect too much
