KDE's Kstars team have released another minor update to the Kstars 3.2.x series. This version fixes some minor bugs and a race condition and adds the ability to use change the default X cursor in the Sky Map view to either an arrow or a circle.

You can enjoy this new setting under the Settings menu where you find Configure KStars, Advanced and Look & Feel.

KStars is worth a test-run if you are unfamiliar with it.


It's got powerful features for professional astronomers but it's also a neat program to play with if you want to brush up on your knowledge of constellations or just want to learn about the night sky.

All the distributions has it so you can easily install a current version by looking for kstars. Binaries for Mac OS and Windows and Linux source code can be acquired from https://edu.kde.org/kstars/#download
