Stellarium 0.12.1 Release Candidate 1

Release candidate 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 and various small GUI changes. The release candidate 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.

This is not a fully stable release and it's not intended for distribution and re-distribution to end users. The RC1 version is
intended for testing only and should be installed only for peoples who don't mind looking for bugs and reporting them.
