GKrellSun 1.0.0

Volume 9, Issue 32; 17 Mar 2006; last modified 08 Oct 2010

GKrellSun is a GKrellM plugin that displays solar and lunar information.

Screenshot of GKrellSun showing the sunI wrote the GKrellSun plugin for GKrellM ages ago. And by wrote, I mean “cobbled other plugin code together into the GKrellM framework”. Credit where it's due, Kurt Hindenburg has done more maintenance than I have in the past few years.

However, Geoff Kuenning sent me a couple of patches the other day that, among other things, claim to fix the occasionally wildly incorrect ephemeris calculations. Squashing that bug seemed important enough to me that I went ahead and pushed out a new release. A “1.0.0” release because I figured that several years of “0.x.x” releases is enough to get us past the “beta” stage.

Share and enjoy!
