Bug reports to be resolved

Other Required Fixes

  • Improve opaque ground polygon
  • Fix custom catalogs, make it *much* easier to add custom objects
  • UI file for Location dialog (and others?)
  • OpsDialog: child widgets should disable when parent deselected: CNames, MW, Hide obj.
  • AltVsTime: can add custom object more than once, because coords are re-precessed
  • Details: "Edit Link" button should allow link text to be changed
  • Details: Log window: get rid of Save button; text should silently autosave
  • ScriptBuilder: Does not warn if Save As target already exists
  • Showing star mag label, but not name label, prepends "star" to label

New Features:

  • Almanac Tool: show dates of Sun events (equinoxes/soltices), major moon phases, eclipses, etc. Possible integration with KOrganizer?

  • Improve Jupiter Moons Tool: show dates rather than day offset; show position of moons at t0
  • Contour lines for large nebulae
  • Alternative sky-projection schemes
  • Indicate binarity/variability of stars on map?
  • DCOP functions for drawing text and lines on the sky map
  • Better rendering of comets and asteroids
