Thanks to FraGGod and Markus for bug reports and ideas, and thanks for FraGGod (again) for code contribution.
This release contains FraGGod's reverse DNS lookup code (optimized for speed), additional desktop support on *nix (xfce enters experimental), a more "sane" config location as suggested to rocket357 in an e-mail from Markus, and other ideas and suggestions from Markus and FraGGod.
With the release of 0.4.4, the GeoXPlanet team is pleased to announce another "branch" of GeoXPlanet. The new branch includes a SQLite database file of the MaxMind GeoLiteCity database. The license for this data can be found here:
The GeoXPlanet team contacted MaxMind to clarify the licensing, and the green light was given to redistribute. The file releases that contain the database file are clearly marked as "GeoXPlanet-(version)-SQLite-Maxmind.(zip|tar.bz2)"... read more
Minor bugfixes, added support for SQLite and MySQL.
Bugfix release, thanks to praka123, gary4gar, and NucleusKore for alerting me to these bugs.

GeoXPlanet 0.3.6 has been released. This release includes general optimizations and minor bugfixes.
Fixed a bug in localhost public ip lookup - rocket357
Restructured code for readability - rocket357
Put in print statements during init - rocket357
Coded section to handle launching XPlanet with -num_times 1 - rocket357
Added code to handle setting the background in kde/gnome/fluxbox - rocket357
Removed useless config file options - rocket357
Added check to run XPlanet only if connection list changed - rocket357
Fixed bug that caused GeoXPlanet to hang on non-gnome systems, added statement to inform user that GeoXPlanet is waiting for connections, added check to ensure xplanet isn't running already, added automated lookup for public ip and lat/long
This release is a major leap forward, as xplanet/xearth can now be launched from GeoXPlanet (avoiding all of the confusion in coordinating the two), port number titling is now color coordinated, and marker sizes can be altered via the config file.
Check it out!
This update includes support for arcs, color randomization, and titling the points with the port number or ip address of the connection.
This is a minor bugfix release. Thanks to gary4gar for reporting the bug!
GeoXPlanet 0.3, with the promised Windows/BSD/etc... support, is now available for download. In addition to the multiplatform modifications, small optimizations and enhancements have been made.
Next release will include better handling of paths in Windows (currently the markerfile has to reside in Desktop\xplanet-1.2.0\xplanet\markers for compatibility with winXPlanetBG), and possibly the promised MySQL support!
Windows is gettin' some lovin' too...
GeoXPlanet 0.3 will include limited support for Windows XP. See the screenshot section for the XP screenie.
Dev/Tester Drac0Linux has been added to the team. Drac0 will perform testing and will work on MySQL support.
Welcome to the team!
Version 0.2 has been released. This version contains a centralized config file.
GeoXPlanet-0.1 has been released. This is an alpha/testing release. The code has support for online lookups via hostip.info and database lookups via PostgreSQL (with the MaxMind database). psycopg and psycopg2 have been tested thus far.
