Maemo-Stars released: a star atlas for Maemo
About Maemo Stars
Maemo stars is the port of “Stars” to the Maemo platform.
“Stars ” was written a few years ago and left unfinished (but with the core functionality fully useable) by the original author.
Original author site: “Stars”
The porting process was not straightforward since GTK and GLADE libraries have changed quite a lot in the past 3 years and much code had to be rewritten. The hildonization process took also some time to complete.
Maemo Stars now has a home in the Maemo Garage, a GForge-powered development site for software projects related to the Maemo developer platform. Visit Maemo Stars’s Project Page for downloads and details about Maemo Stars and its development. Add bug reports or feature requests to the Tracker.

Unfortunately this program still has a few minor bugs:
- ngc31 catalog is not functioning
- configuration options are not stored when exit the program (this was never implemented in the original application)
- horizontal and vertical scrollbars are not coherent (and they are buggy when close the edges)
