Short description of error
While this feature is very useful in 3d view, it's annoying in the node editors. Leads to too many clicks.
I consider it a mistake.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Open up the shading editor for example and drag a node.

If you refer to "Release confirms" unchecked box behavior, I have to agree with this. If this is by design in 2.8, it should be at least optional, and not enabled by default in node editors.

Yes, i meant the unchecked box behavior.

Cannot comment about the usefulness (I have it ON all the time), but will subscribe @William Reynish (billreynish) here.

In some cases, it's could be useful, e.g. when you are working with Laptop's -> Trackpad, whether it's Node Editor, 3d Viewport...or whatever..
IMO, In this why not a bug (useful feature already even in Node Editor)
Note: Most of the time it's checked (default)

Just to clarify that "Release Confirms" unchecked box behavior has no effect on node editors in 2.79, and I think that developers intentionally chose to do so because it is annoying most of the time (or at least not as useful as in 3D View editor ). While it is acceptable for some users to consider this behavior useful in node editor, I think that it should then be an option in which the user can choose the behavior in node editor (please)

I just tried Release Confirms OFF and it feels completely wrong :) even in node editors. Some tools might have a checkbox for 3D views and 2D views but it could get confusing to differentiate users desired behaviour in graph editors vs node editors vs text editors (what about orthographic views?)

I'd vote for leaving it on by default personally.

You're new to blender and started with 2.8, right? Because release confirms off been there for years and it has its benefits in 3d view, dope sheet and curve editor, but not in node editors. And i agree, that this setting must be separated for different editors. Or make it as it was before: the setting does not affect node editors.

Actually been using Blender since 2.5 and I have always had it on, obviously my comment is only an opinion of my own experience. It's probably best to have seperate settings for editors (UE4 does this), the one downside is it can get a bit 'busy' in the preferences with different settings per view. On balance though it would be best I'd say.

Thank you very much for considering that this was an unwanted behavior! I thought we would have to live with this. Thank you.

@YAFU (YAFU): changed for a different method (rB295f8884336c -- previous commit was causing T70504), should be no functional change though...

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk) , I see, right. Now this is working as in 2.79.
Thanks.
