Latest Celestia Windows & macOS builds compiled from git (added a working macOS binary built with Qt5)

Post #1by Markerz » 29.01.2009, 13:52

Pls check the latest notes...

WHAT FOR:

For getting bug fixes, new features, translations and ...

HOW TO:

In Mac: mount the .dmg and run Celestia.
In Windows: copy the files in the .zip to Celestia's root directory and run it or use the installer.

Notes
--------------------------
I use XCode 3.1.3 in Leopard to build it just like what MacOS platform says.
Now the latest version I've build is svn 4610.I will try to build a weekly version like cartrite's Win32 Executable from SVN

---- 1/9/2009
---------------------------
Use dropbox as the online disk to upload the latest version.

---- 2/10/2009
----------------------------
Use setting
in xcode. And the latest version should start up faster.

---- 3/14/2009
-----------------------------
Begin Win32 executable building.

---- 4/4/2009
-----------------------------
Test for linux user.

---- 4/19/2009
----------------------------
I am thinking about stopping compiling the windows version because there is Guillermo Abramson (http://cabfst28.cnea.gov.ar/~abramson/celestia/svnexec/) doing the job and I update much more slowly than him.

-----10/24/2009
-----------------------------
I think I should do something else like making the installer.
And Linux verison removed.

-----10/30/2009
----------------------------
Dropbox always bans my public links. So changed to Windows Live SkyDrive :(

-----2/6/2010
----------------------------
Add a Qt4 version

-----4/17/2010
----------------------------
since i am in senior high school now. the heavy schoolwork let there be rare time to do the work. a new update may take a long time to be here, especially the mac version.

-----8/17/2010
----------------------------
just found out that Celestia is back to life again, wow, great news! I haven't done any editing to this thread since more than 6 years ago but i decided to give it an update, the link below do not work but ill keep them unchanged until the github repo versions are compilable.

-----1/24/2017
----------------------------
there is a guy on github named Gattocrucco who fixed building on macOS, I used his fork to build a Qt version of the Celestia shown below. if anyone is interested, I provided a precompiled binary in the download section below. You can download and have a try for yourself, I am not sure if any dependency is needed.

The latest version is below.

SVN 4632
SVN 4632 HDR

Markerz, I just tried to access your links and got a Chinese page that seemed to be asking me for a password. Only a guess since, sadly, English and Italian are my only two languages at the moment. I would dearly love to have your newest Mac OS X version of celestia (that is what the links reference, isn't it?)

I have an entry-level account with Freeservers that I plan to dump in May or June of this year for want of better service. My domain has about 700 megs left unused. Does that sound big and good enough? If so, you can email me at j g t h o m a s * o p t o n l i n e dot n e t to set up the transfer.

Markerz, does your new 1.6.1 version for Mac OS X include compatibility with the educational activities of the educational version of 1.5.1, which is currently only for Windows boxes?
