- Online informationen about the planets and satellites of the solar system can now additionally be accessed from the planet filter in the preferences window.

- 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.
