Release of Stellarium version 0.12.1 is now available.

New features: Caldwell catalog for nebulae, re-packed star catalogs (Hipparcos and Tycho-2), delta-T manager, star magnitude limit control, localization for Windows installer, updates textures of galaxies and nebulae and various small GUI changes. The release has over 30 closed bugs in the core application and plugins.

A huge thanks to our community whose contributions help to make Stellarium better!

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

You can download new version from http://stellarium.org or https://launchpad.ne...ium/0.12/0.12.1 websites (Note: package for Mac OS X will be published later).

I was just wishing I could add a barlow to the EP view.

Glad it's now an option!

Excellent news, Stellarium is my favourite planetarium software. I find it intuitive and of more practical use than any of the payware options I have bought over the years.
