(Note that this is not severe. Regressions should be fixed first)

Currently the panel is always placed on the very edge of the screen.
Wouldn't it be possible to allow the panel to be "undocked" from the
edge so that it can "float" on the screen?

yes, we've thought about it a few times. I don't think it would take
much work (once the panel has a good ui), but it's not a high priority.

the ability to undock file selector existed in earlier versions.  I
often used this feature.  I would like it back.  What needs to be done?

This feature request was filed for KDE Plasma 4, which reached end-of-
support status in August 2015. KDE Plasma 5's desktop shell has been
almost completely rewritten for better performance and usability, so it
is likely that this feature request is already implemented in Plasma 5,
or is no longer applicable.

Accordingly, we hope you understand why we must close this feature
request. If the requested feature is still desired but not implemented
in KDE Plasma 5.12 or later, please feel free to open a new ticket in
the "plasmashell" product after reading

If you would like to get involved in KDE's bug triaging effort so that
future mass bug closes like this are less likely, please read

Thanks for your understanding!
