Drag and Drop per page without using templates?

Is this slated for any future release?

At the current time we've not heard anything in regards to incorporating this into future releases. As soon as we do have information on new features/updates/editions we'll release it via email and through the Pagelines blog. So we'll keep you informed :-)

I hope Pagelines doesn't mind me making a suggestion for a non-competing product on their forums, but there are "composition" solutions available for Wordpress, such as this:
Now, I've never used this particular standalone system, but I've seen it integrated into a number of themes. A combination of Pagelines and this plugin should give you almost complete flexibility in the design of each page and the display of content.
I second the desire for per-page design capabilities, for no other reason than the fact that it is more intuitive. I think a lot of the Pagelines learning curve has to do with the abstraction of the design to "templates." It convolutes the whole process.

I have used that plugin before but not recently so Im not sure of any new features, but with the introduction of the PageLines Grid and Shortcodes you can pretty much do everything that plugin can do.
As for the suggestion regarding Drag and Drop on the Page/Post editor. At first thought, it sounds like a great idea however, in my opinion implementing this kind of system would make the Framework become overly populated with options and only confuse users.
I think the system we have now is more ideal, creating a custom template for your pages is quite fast. We would prefer to give you the ability to create custom page templates via an option but with a Wordpress quirk, at the moment its possible.
