Release Notes: StarPlot now permits the use of parsecs instead of light-years as the primary distance unit, and also can show distances in astronomical units and miles or kilometers at close range. A new button permits the chart to be set to the orientation of a volume of space as seen from Earth. A new dialog box makes it easy to calculate the distance between two arbitrary points in space. More documentation has been written. Some bugs preventing compilation with modern g++ versions have also been fixed.
Release Notes: This is a bugfix release that improves support for older compilers (g++ 2.95) and older versions of GTK+ 2. The Spanish translation is now es.po instead of es_ES.po, so will also work with Latin American locales.
Release Notes: This is the first version to support i18n, and a Castilian Spanish translation is now available. Other new features include a "Save to PNG" option and an improved star information dialog with sortable columns. A new configure script option allows specifying the default Web browser at compile time. The starconvert utility now has some support for multiple star systems. Numerous other minor enhancements and bugfixes have been made.
Release Notes: The bug causing random changes in the display colors on Mac OS X has been fixed. (On other platforms, it is probably unnecessary to upgrade from version 0.94.)
Release Notes: This release of StarPlot has been ported to GTK+ version 2, so it has anti-aliased fonts. A font dialog is included, in addition to other, more minor aesthetic improvements. The source tree now has an autoconf-generated configure script. Some minor bugfixes have also been made.
Release Notes: A "starpkg" shell script was added to make it easier to install star data sets for StarPlot and keep them up to date.
Release Notes: The program legend is now clickable, providing a shortcut to the spectral class part of the Chart->Star Filter dialog box. Full constellation names are now displayed and can be searched on.
Release Notes: Compilation errors with g++ 3.0.x and egcs 2.91.66 fixed. Primitive anti-aliasing implemented to improve appearance of star symbols on charts.
Release Notes: StarPlot will now read / write a ~/.starplotrc file saving the user's display and chart settings. Other new features include a menu option to open or save "parameter files" with the same format as the RC file, browsing of the help documentation from within the program, improvements to the star search function, and a Debian directory in the source tree, making it easy to create native Debian packages.
