Stellarium is now constructed so that new or special features can be added as plugin modules eg. At the present moment the plug-ins are only supplied in source code.

General purpose plug-ins

There are three general purpose plug-ins available at the moment:

AngleMeasure 
To measure the angle between two objects on the view window
CompassMarks 
Places a relative set of degree markers on the horizon
Ocular 
Creates a window for a predetermined telescope view.

The programs are in the form of a *.DLL file and a *.ini file, placed in a folder "modules" of the Stellarium root directory or the documents and settings/user area allocated to the config.ini file and is called by a key combination Ctrl (?) and sub key if necessary.

Compiled versions

As these modules are only available in source code they need to be compiled. For those Windows users who cannot compile there are unofficial compiled versions available at Barry Gerdes' Stellarium site
