0.14.0 [2015-10-24]
A big leap forward in astronomical accuracy for historical applications:
- Precession now follows the IAU2006 model in the long-time version from V
ondrak
et al. 2011.
- Nutation is applied (IAU2000B solution). Given that nobody has observed
it without
telescope and the model does not give limits of applicability, we limit
its application
to 1500..2500
- Application of DeltaT has been simplified and made a bit more intuitive.
We now dare to add another coordinate system: Ecliptic coordinates of date.
We can therefore now show that planetary positions given by the commonly us
ed solution
VSOP87 is applicable to -4000..+8000 only, and its use outside this range w
ill give
somewhat artificial results. There is more to follow in future versions.
The other big addition is a greatly improved collection of DSO data with lo
ts of
possibilities in a new GUI tab to select for object type and/or catalog. In
total,
15 catalogs are now built-in!
Also the Meteor Shower, Satellites, Telescope Control and 3D Sceneries plug
ins have
been improved.
Landscapes can have switchable labels, so you can e.g. indicate mountain pe
aks.
In total 83 bugs and wishlist items were fixed or at least decided.
A platform-specific change for Windows: OpenGL binding is now dynamic. That
means, there are
no more separate OpenGL/ANGLE/MESA downloads, but after installation you wi
ll have separate
commands in the start menu which force ANGLE or MESA modes.
