In addition to the fixes listed about, the forum post also discusses the future of Tiled 1.2:

I’m currently spending most of my time finalizing Tiled 1.2. Recent improvements have included highlighting of the hovered object and showing an object placement preview on hover. A few more improvements remain to be done as well as polishing the multi-layer and world features. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to install the development snapshot and give feedback!

Many thanks to all who submitted bug reports, as well as to those who support me financially so that I can keep up Tiled development and maintenance!
