This small patch adds few bugfixes, and was released to the public branch. It was merged with the previous patch 0.990.38.1730.

The header image is a prominent triple solar eclipse on Jupiter, occurred at January 24, 2015. This event makes noticeable a bug in SE: orientation of analytical orbits of Jovian moons was inaccurate. As a result, Callisto’s shadow missed Jupiter’s disk. This is fixed now. Note that if you plan Jupiter observations with SE, you must take into account light travel delay, which is not yet modeled by SE (35-50 minutes for Jupiter).

Build 0.990.38.1740

  • Fixed bug with erroneous planetary systems in globular clusters
  • Fixed completely black areas on cold red giants in auto/manual exposure mode
  • Fixed incorrect orientation of orbits of Galilean moons

  • Build 0.990.38.1730

  • New Titan textures by retro-visor
  • Adjusted gamma of Jupiter and Io textures
  • Adjusted photometric properties of Jupiter and the Galilean satellites for increased accuracy
  • Gamma correction for planet textures: parameter in catalog scripts and slider in the editor
  • Added ability to specify a threshold for the bloom effect (doesn’t affect anything by default).
  • New music by Lokijar
  • Fixed bug with selection of wrong screenshot file format at startup
