Changes in version 5.0:
- Stars can be displayed according to the zoom factor (that means only
the bright ones will be drawn in a big field of view and the more you
zoom in the more stars appear). There's more data available for each
star, incl. spectral type, SAO Number and more.
- Besides the huge star database there are a few small improvements like
control-clicking on the stars to get information without always having
to close the data window.
- Various bugs and issues are fixed, among others:
- the centering on certain constellations was wrong
- a bug in the pop-up menus in the search star window
- better display of the magnitude
- some stars around the poles weren't drawn in certain situations
English and German versions available.
Demo - only a few locations are available until the program is registered.

included those. Download both version 5.0 and the appropriate patch.
