Object Placement Preview on Hover


The biggest change since the last snapshot is that all object creation tools now show a preview of the object that's going to be placed already before clicking. This is very useful for the tile and template placement tools, but also for the other object creation tools since it makes it clear which tool is selected.

Another useful improvement is that you can now press Escape to abort a move, resize or rotate operation and revert the objects back into the state they started in. This also works for the Edit Polygon Tool.

A number of fixes have been made as well, which makes it about time to roll out a Tiled 1.1.6 release for the stable version.
