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.

Quoting Redwind85,

Still a bug as it breaks user expectation.  Even with no equipment I should still be taken to the equipment screen.  Anything else makes the user think the button is broken.

Verifying that I've seen the same problem.  The button only works after you've added something to the inventory for that hero/sovereign (via shop, ruins, trading, or combat).

For now, the workaround I use is to click on the character portrait, then click on the 'equip' button or whatever it is in the character info card.  That'll get you to the inventory. 

This becomes necessary as I like to know what equipment I have on hand before entering the shop and end up buying something that hero already has.

even better would be for the shop to display equipment in the inventory tab (or extra tab) along with what slot the stuff goes to, rather than just odd bits that you can sell.
