We have released KStars 0.9.1. This is a maintenance release containing all
of the changes made up to the KDE 3.1 feature freeze. Some of the changes
+ replaced Info Panel with 3 separate Info Boxes drawn directly on the Sky
map. These boxes can be moved around the window, and can even be "shaded" to
show only one line of data (by double-clicking the box).
+ added "Detailed Information" window, accessible from any object's popup
+ ~50% improvement in sky-rendering speed due to code optimizations.
+ new "day duration" Astro Calculator module.
+ many other bugfixes and improvements; see the ChangeLog for more details.
Note that this is the last release for which we will make a KDE 2 version.
The image alpha-blending in KStars is reason enough to upgrade to KDE3! :)
