You can change the default drag mode from "copy" to "move" by unchecking
the item from main_menu->options->preferences->copy_on_drag.
Alternately, you can use shift-drag for moving, ctrl-drag for copying
and ctr-shift-drag for symlinking.

There used to be. I don't know why it is not there anymore. I'll check
on this for RC1.
