Autorotation will not be in the fisrt release.
For next versions, we are thinking about a global graphic template (text, animation, menu...) this kind of feature will have his place here.
For the second demand, I don't really see the comportment. May be you have an example...
Because then you could have a fully automated tour - moving within and between panos from view to view in a timed manner without user interaction, but perhaps with opportunity for user override.
It is something I asked about previously.
AFAIK no alternative GUI virtual tour product yet offers this although I expect it can be done with hand coded XML.
It would be partcularly interesting for gigapixel panos I think because it's not every user who wishes to spend ages manually interacting witha pano to see the interesting parts. Couple it with a synched voiceover, music and other effects and you have a new sort of Flash pano-based multimedia experience.
The Gigapan viewer snapshot feature goes some way towards this - and is interesting (and fun) because it allows users to determine what views they think may interest others.
