On the unit portrait there now appears an "Equip" button that is transparent. It has the mouseover text "View Equipment". Clicking on this button does nothing.
To get the equipment screen still requires clicking on the portrait and then clicking on "Equip" on the hiergamenon page.
Also, Equipment NEEDS a hotkey. Either "E" for equipment or "I" for inventory. Absolutely required functionality for any game that has an inventory system.
