You should still be able to drag items on to the sidebar. To remove them either right/command(⌘)-click and select Remove from Sidebar or drag while holding ⌘.

weird: dragging in wasn't working before, but it is now. – sprugman Oct 27 '11 at 21:57

I don't think you can drag folders out anymore (to prevent accidental deletions), but if you right click you should have a "remove from sidebar" item in the context menu.

Command/drag works for me - as does the right click.
