Improvements to Object Tools and more

This new development snapshot brings mainly improvements to object tools. You can now double-click on a polygon or a polyline to switch to the Edit Polygons tool, and you can press Escape to get back to the Select Objects tool. Escape can also be used to clear the current selection, be it polygon node selection or object selection. While in the Edit Polygons tool, you can now extend polylines though the context menu of the points on either end of it.

There is also a new option to display the object name label for the hovered object. I plan to experiment with more general highlighting of the hovered object for a future update.
