Astronomy: Digital Almanac III - update and further news
Promised is promised: the latest update for DA III (to version 4.2) was uploaded to Aminet. Users of the program can download and decrypt the program via in-built function automatically as soon as the update appears on the recent list. For this you need an already installed v4.0 or higher.

Here the most important changes:
  • Complete Bayer/Flamsteed data base (historical naming of stars)
  • The DA screen is now public.
  • The printer output can now be previewed in a browser.
  • Online information about several hundred stars.


The most important bugfixes:
  • Drawing Deep Sky objects into the printer output caused crashes.
  • The evaluation of the mouse position in the PPC versions had not always worked.
And a short notice regarding the OpenGL version of DA III (issue 10/2001 of the AmigaPlus): This project was cancelled already several weeks ago as there was no speed gain compared to the normal version.
(ps) (Translation: wk)
