A periodic table is a very optional part of a calculator, so it's obviously no big deal, but I think that if you put the table into the program, you might as well have it include more information.

This is such an easy feature to implement that it's really a shame not to do it. You already have a field for weight, might as well have fields for number of shells, electron configuration, melting point, etc.

There's more to an element than just its weight!

    The problem is that somebody need to do the work, which anyone easily can do using the user interface included in Qalculate! for editing data sets. So far it has not been one of my main priorities.

    I have now added boiling point, melting point, density, ionization potential and covalent radius.
