Reviews for this release

I encountered 3 serious problems when using this: -The tooltips sometimes got "attached" to the mouse cursor and left ghosts behind as the cursor was moved. -The previously shown tooltip sometimes displays from clicking, even in a non-tooltip equipped area. -Trying to do an opening or closing animation with a time of less than 1 second fails, it only runs the animation part way.

I try to use your library in my project and see the result.
