Dead stars for KStars!

At last there are supernovae on the skymap of KStars! Small orange ‘+’ signs mark the spots of fury. The list of recent supernovae can be created/updated by using the Update Recent Supernovae Data option under Settings—>Updates.

Also Supernovae can be found by using the Find Dialog Box by using their serial number.

And right clicking on supernovae and getting some detailed information also works. 🙂 Anyway, let me finish this quick.. need to catch a train tomorrow morning and really need to catch up with some sleep.

So what next? Well, checking for new supernovae discoveries at startup and alerting the user of such discoveries needs to be done. Also the user needs to have the freedom of choosing whether to see those orange ‘+’ signs on the skymap. I somehow find them a little irritating. 😛
