Stellarium 0.11.3 released with fixes and improvements (PPA available)
Stellarium is an open-source full-fledged planetarium, that brings a 3D realistic high-quality sky on the desktop, "just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope".
Stellarium comes with a an impressive amount of features, such as "powerful" sky (more than 600,000 stars, constellations rendered in relation to twelve distinct cultures, numerous planets and satellites, precise/realistic atmosphere, sunrise and sunset, etc), in-depth visualization (eclipse simulation, shooting stars, azimuthal and equatorial grids, supernovae simulations, etc), solid interface (time control, easy-to-use zoom, multilingual interface, telescope control, etc) and tweaking support (ability to add new solar system from online sources, plugin support, etc).
Stellarium has been updated to version 0.11.3, mainly as a bug fixes release, fixing more than 30 bugs.
The new 0.11.3 adds various minor user interface refinements, an ecliptic grid, Pluto texture, as well as an enriched location list featuring world observatories.
