Stage tooltips

Based on the stage renderer selected for a workflow, workflow stage icons may display tooltips with detailed information about a stage.

When a user points to a Waiting for Approval stage, the tooltip displays the name of the approver. A tooltip does not appear when a user points to other stage icons.
