Aciqra 2.1.1
by Aciqra on December 23, 2011

An update to Aciqra 2.1 has been released. It is primarily a bugfix release fixing two bugs and includes one interface change. The minor planets feature did not work properly in the original release. There were problems both on the side of Aciqra and of Aloac which calculates the position itself. With this update, the feature is in working condition. Also, planets were being "drawn" regardle...
Aciqra 2.1 Release
by Aciqra on December 21, 2011

It was three years ago to the day that the Aciqra project first made its presence known to the world as a project on SourceForge. Its first release came just two days later -- a simplistic planetarium program -- unimpressive to say the least. Over these next three years, the project steadily grew as progress was made towards create a better, more advanced program. These results of three years of w...
Milestone 5 Released
by Aciqra on August 26, 2011

It has been just ten days since the completion of Milestone 4 but those days have been among the most productive in the history of the project. The three objectives for Milestone 5 were completed in that time as were many other improvements allowing the milestone, originally scheduled for mid-September, to be released today, a full three weeks ahead of schedule. Despite the short period of deve...
Versioning Simplified
by Aciqra on August 26, 2011

Only recently, we announced a revised system for versioning Aciqra. It was designed to clean up the project, which had started to get messy, by organizing the project into a complex structure. There was two be two sub-projects, limiting version numbers to Aciqra 1.* and 2.* with one sub-project managing each. Each sub-project could create major, moderate-sized and minor releases under those versio...
Milestone 4 Released
by Aciqra on August 16, 2011

Despite this, numerous improvements have been made to the program: - Label cardinal directions - Option to hide information text - Labels can show other data besides an object's name - Time controls for moving between ti...
Snowy and Fairweather
by Aciqra on August 16, 2011

Since its conception in April, 2009, the second series of Aciqra has been referred to as Aciqra II. Aciqra II was to be a complete replacement (written from the ground up) of the original Aciqra. However, as development progressed, it became apparent that this was not to be the case. The structure of the new series makes rebuilding Aciqra to its entirety close to impossible. Even if it happened, i...
Milestone 3 Released
by Aciqra on July 08, 2011

It has been another two and a third months since the last milestone. Since then, development has advanced through many additional features and optimization updates. Due to a revised milestone schedule (which added two additional milestones), this is not the Milestone 3 that had originally been planned. It is only the first half of that. The second half of the original Milestone 3 will arrive as Mi...
Milestone 2 Released
by Aciqra on April 30, 2011

Since Milestone 1 back in December, the following changes have been implemented: - Show object labels on hover - Labeling for menu icons - Precession & nutation corrections - Account for proper motion with stars - Tracking for Earth's rotation - Night vision mode - Atmospheric refr...
Site Down
by Aciqra on January 11, 2011

There appear to be issues with the Aciqra website and it is down for the time being. These issues are likely related to the hosting platform by SourceForge which is currently under testing. The Aciqra site is participating in that test. Unless the issue is critical, the site will likely return within two days if all goes as it has in the past. SourceForge has been notified of this problem. U...
