In OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), Is dragging and icon to remove it from the dock no longer available?

I just upgraded last week and removing doc icons only works with a right click (I can't drag icons off anymore). Is this correct, or do I have a bug?

I have a hunch this isn't right, if so, does anyone know how to resolve it??

I seem to be able to remove folders from the dock by dragging, but not applications. You can also click and hold on the icon which will bring up the contextual menu to remove the icon without right clicking.

Thanks for pointing out about the folders, I tried it and noticed there is a delay on removing app icons.  If I hold them out there for a little then they will be removable, thanks for helping me figure out the new way.

In Mountain Lion you can still drag applications out of the Dock but you have to drag it higher, about 12 cm/5 in. A cloud will appear on the icon when you have reached high enough.
