I also preferred the old position on the left. As far as I understand, it was removed to allow completely hiding the whole shortcut bar...

Maybe it would be acceptable to keep the 'overall' build status on the right side, but move the details tooltip in the left bar (I.e.same as older versions) when it is displayed?
