version of Stellarium has been run will continue
with the old settings unless defaults are reset.
An installer for Windows can be downloaded from the usual place on the website.
The build for Mac OS X will be a little late. For now, a pre-release build can be downloaded from the usual place on the website.
Packages for Ubuntu Lucid Lynx (10.04) and Maverick Meerkat (10.10) are available from Stellarium’s Launchpad PPA (Personal Package Archive):
Actually, it is not necessary to visit the website. The PPA can be added to Ubuntu’s software sources in the Software Center or the Synaptic package manager:
It also can be added by running these two commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stellarium/stellarium-releases
sudo apt-get update
After that, Stellarium can be installed from the Software Center, Synaptic or the command line.
