I now know what this last rather cryptic post by Alex is referencing. It looks to be the development-team has incorporated features on the surface's of the planets and moon's of our our solar-system. The latest 'Trunk' version of Stellarium ('beta') -  0.90.0.9930 - bears this out. These are from this version:

Amazing stuff!

Thanks, folks -

I dont know whether this is the right place to report this small error; but the right angle of Triangulum is in the wrong place. The line should surely be from Mizan to Gamma Tri and not to 7 Tri.

No exist the right form for constellations lines, but in this case seems your are right - I'll fix it. Thanks!
