gstar provides a GTK frontend for "starchart", a program written in 1987 by Alan Paeth. The frontend offers a list of pre-defined areas of the sky to chart, plus controls to customize the chart in several ways. Buttons pop up a given postscript chart in gv, or save it to file. Since Paeth's program is freely distributable the source for starchart (along with data files) has been rolled into the gstar package, making it self-contained.
Release Notes: First release.
