Pre-release test build of Stellarium 0.10.6

After unpleasant past experiences, the team decided to stop new developments in the code* two weeks before the release and make a test build, so that the translators and testers can have a go at it.

(* We are supposed to be committing only bug fixes after that, but, as someone noticed, “One man’s bug fix is another man’s new feature.”)

Matthew Gates has written a description (with many screenshots) of what is new in Stellarium 0.10.6. So, the only thing left for me is to post links to the test packages I made.

Windows

A test package for Windows can be downloaded from here:
https://launchpad.net/stellarium/+download
(look for stellarium-0.10.6-beta-1-win32.exe)

Ubuntu

There is also a PPA (Personal Package Archive) at Launchpad with .deb packages for Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) and Maverick Meerkat (10.10):
https://launchpad.net/~stellarium/+archive/stellarium-testing/
Visiting that page is actually not necessary: all you have to do is to add this to your software sources:

ppa:stellarium/stellarium-testing

You can do it in the Software Center, the Synaptic package manager, or by opening a terminal and running these commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stellarium/stellarium-testing
sudo apt-get update
