SaVi 1.3.0 released

This new release of SaVi, the satellite constellation visualization software, lets you simulate systems like Iridium, Globalstar and Sirius Radio in 2D and 3D on your desktop. This release includes all work done for a workshop on satellite applications and constellations given as a guest lecturer at the International Space University Summer Session.

The SaVi 1.3.0a release (19 July 2006) adds satellites counts to the fisheye view, builds on FreeBSD with make ARCH="freebsd", builds on Debian with make ARCH="debian", improves error reporting when the user passes invalid command-line parameters, sets coverage in the Ellipso script, fixes an error when the user specifies a coverage map with extension .gz, ask the user what size Coverage panel is desired, allows satellites and coverage to be edited to hidden in the Coverage panel, improves layout of the Fisheye view, adds simulation of the Disaster Monitoring Constellation and Japanese quasi-geostationary systems, properly handles directory names containing spaces, and, at long last, adds a SaVi user manual.
