Software News   Software News : Digital Almanac III v5.4 update available
   posted by MikeB on 27-Aug-2003 10:13:32 (2051 reads)
A new update for the astronomy program Digital Almanac III is available for download.

Update: Version 5.5 is now available.


Here is a short list of changes which have been made:

- City list has been rewritten. The list contains all countries of the world with their flags (optional). The format of the list has changed, so the list is now independend from the Locale settings.
The moving of cities was very buggy before. Now it works without any problems.
- Online information of the countries are available from the CIA World Factbook.
- Improved ephemeris of the Saturnian satellites Helene, Telesto and Calypso with the help of the HTC20 theory.
- Online informationen about the planets and satellites of the solar system can now additionally be accessed from the planet filter in the preferences window.
- IFF-ILBM savings are done via Datatypes. This saves about 10 kB code and is more system-friendly.
- BUGFIX: In the calendar, meteor showers were shown at a wrong date.
- BUGFIX: In previous versions, when the program was started from a Shell, the DOS parameters were analyzes wrong. This bug is now fixed.
- BUGFIX: Program could crash when drawing too many Deep-Sky objects (PPC only).

Just came in from looking at Mars now through the telescope. Looked brilliant, damn clouds though here in Melbourne spoiled it after a short stint looking at it. How about you guys in NSW?

Tonight: Raining. determinedly so. Doh !

I have seen these conjunctions before, y'know - the one in '89 was quite good, and
at least mars will still be bright for a good few weeks yet !

(PS: posting from Konqueror on me A1 ! popped in to see if i could get hints on getting Mol
started. I'll take it to another thread though ! )

My brother, Bodie, has MOL working, I'll ask him to see if he can post a few hints and whatnot. Congrats wif the A1! When did it arrive?

LOL damn rains, even though we desperately need them here in the sunburnt country (BTW I hate those phrases).
