Have tooltips been worked on yet?  Because they're pretty unusable at the moment.

Yep, as per the pending release notes, this stuff is in for the next version, which I hope to get out today:
Quote
* The ship detail display now continues to show for 2 seconds after your mouse is no longer over the ship.
** When the mouse is within the ship detail display it continues to refresh that 2-second timer.

* The individual icons and text elements inside the Ship Detail display now have mouseover tooltips that:
** Float just to the right and below the mouse cursor, but don't run off the bottom or right of the screen.
** Size to fit the text being displayed, and wrap long lines.
** Disappear after about half a second of the mouse cursor not being over something that should cause a tooltip.
** The above is just standard behavior that you would presumably expect. Many hours and electrons lost their lives in the war to persuade our engine of this.

* The planet tooltip no longer shows at the same time as the ship detail display when mousing over the icon of a unit that shows on the galaxy map.
** The planet tooltip will be reworked into another detail display fairly soon, but for now this was necessary to avoid overlap.

If I had some Nanocaust updates, could I get them in for this release? Or should I wait.

Next release is best. I'm doing the process myself, for the first time, so best to keep things simple (i.e. if it dies it's unambiguous who's responsible ;) )

As it is I've had one push die horribly and need to be reverted, so still digging away at this one...

Wow, it sounds like pushing a build is a harrowing experience!

Historically we've had great processes, I used to be able to push an AIWC update in less than 10 minutes if I was on the ball. Here there's more involved but it wouldn't be too bad without the version change in Unity that happened and messed some stuff up.

Still trying to figure out why the builds I'm producing have so much less data (in a bad way) than Chris's.

Yes, that's ultimately what fixed it.

Now that you're done and have figured out how to push builds, may I petition for the Find Planet, Galaxy Display Map and Nanocaust patches that I've submitted to be included in .514 ;-) ? (and the map types if I'm feeling really optimistic)
