  1. The Stellarium team announces the first release candidate of Stellarium version 0.11.4.

    This release has over 30 closed bugs in the main application and in the plugins. Also this version has improvements of GUI and two new plugins. A huge thanks to all peoples from our community who helped us in finding bugs!

    We are updated the configuration file and the Solar System file, so if you have an existing Stellarium installation, you need to reset the settings after you install the new version.

    This is not a stable release and it's not intended for distribution and re-distribution to end users. The RC1 version is intended for testing only and should be installed only by people who don't mind looking for bugs and reporting them.

    A package for Windows you can download from here:

    for 32-bit: https://launchpad.ne....4RC1-win32.exe

    for 64-bit: https://launchpad.ne....4RC1-win64.exe

    Translators can check translations and fix mistakes on launchpad.net Rosetta - https://translations...1/ translations

  4. In 0.11.2, If I have constellation lines showing (and save it as default), they are not showing when I restart the programme - even though the icon at the bottom of the screen is highlighted. I need to switch them off then switch them on again for them to show...

    A bug maybe???

    Yes, this is bug - we fix it in RC2
