Stellarium 0.90.0.xxxx

Recommended Posts

As you know we use version 0.90.0.xxxx for "unstable binary packages" of Stellarium and those packages may have a new interesting features for testing. In any way version 0.90.0.xxxx has a lot fixes of bugs and it may be interested for users, who are preferred used "bleeding edge" of software.

I've created this topic for informing community about new interesting features for testing for one side, and get a feedback (with reports about problems, of course) from testers-voluteers in other side.

Let's try make Stellarium better by together.

Today we published version 0.90.0.9270 with 3 interesting features:
- support GPS devices to getting coordinates for observer location
- support RTS2 in Telescope Control Plugin
- support to asterisms in skycultures (Alt+A and Alt+V to toggle lines and names visibility)

Having just been swamped with software issues - none Stellarium-oriented - I'll pass on this one, Alex. But I used the last one up until  0.15.2 came out officially, and it was wonderful! Thank you and the team!

By the way, I think the expression you were grasping for was "cutting edge" - not "bleeding edge!" :eek:  :D But I think I'll start using "bleeding edge" in the future instead! :p

Thank you for all you do -

Dave

It is quite common this side of the pond, as a slightly tongue-in-cheek slightly dis-respectful dig at the more posh "cutting edge"

Ah Ha! Socio-Economics 102? :p

Anyway it flies - I love it!

But hey folks - these 0.90.0XXX betas are really fun!

A fresh beta can slew an artificial satellites through RTS2 :)

Plus has some improvements for Oculars plugin and AstroCalc tool.

I thought that Bleeding Edge was fairly common parlance. Cutting Edge is the latest greatest thing; Bleeding Edge is the next Cutting Edge, but still under development so you often get cut.

Stellarium 0.90.0.9484 with new sky culture and updated DSO catalog (added Arp, VV and PK data) is available for public testing...

P.S. Stellarium 0.90.0.9484 support an extended and standard editions of the DSO catalog now. The standard edition is included by default and contains over 83000 objects. The extended edition download separately (by hands at the moment) and it contains over one million deep-sky objects.

Woah! Just when I was planning to sit-tight with the Stellarium-edition I have now (0.15.2), you come up with an offer I can hardly refuse! 1,000,000 DSO's?

I'm going to give it a go! Thanks, Alex - I can't resist this!

Loaded and running it Alex. I dropped the extended DSO catalog in, and it works well, but the warning that it slows down response-time of Stellarium is an apt one. But oh my! What an amazing sight with all the DSO's that are now at our fingertips!

Wow!

From the READ ME:

 

"Stellarium DSO catalog

Version 3.1, extended edition

Standard edition of Stellarium DSO catalog contains the data up to magnitude 15.5
(over 83000 objects). This extended edition of Stellarium DSO catalog contains
the data up to magnitude 19.0 (over one million objects).

Version 3.1 of catalog is used in Stellarium 0.16.0.

WARNING: Stellarium MAY run slow with the extended edition of DSO catalog!"

 

Best Wishes -

Dave

Version 0.90.0.9495 should be more resposiable with loaded million DSOs and when DSO is not shown. For FOV 50 degrees and lesser Stellarium has good smooth movements :).

P.S. Of course Stellarium will be slow when all million objects made visible on wide field of view.

We plan to release Stellarium 0.16.0 around June 21 (at the moment first release candidate was published for the testing of planetarium and translations checking).

This will an another major release with fixes of bugs and a few new important features - another one step to version 1.0. This version has many changes in the GUI and we added many new lines for translation. If you can assist with translation to any of the 140 languages which Stellarium supports, please go to Launchpad Translations and help us out: https://translations.launchpad.net/stellarium
 
If you can help translate description of sky cultures and landscapes on your language then we would be grateful to you for this. You need a create your branch, add 'description.YOUR-LANG-CODE.utf8' files from description.en.utf8 and translate it!
 
You can send translated description.YOUR-LANG-CODE.utf8 files to me for adding in Stellarium also.

Binary packages for Windows/macOS and full list of changes you can find here: https://launchpad.net/stellarium/trunk/0.90.0

Thank you!
