In version 1.7.0 more comfortable Celestial browser.

I tried Cham's release on my system: macos 10.12.2, intel hd graphics 3000 350 MB.

It effectively does not crash when reaching a memory threshold as the 32 bit version, but it crashes on:
* loading non-VT textures 8k and above (a problem I also have on official 1.6.1);
* SPICE files *.bsp (I don't know SPICE, I just understood these are related to SPICE and that the application crashes on add-ons using them, I had to remove JohnVV's ISON and SidingSpring add-ons).

It also has this problem: when I ctrl-click on a planet (the equivalent of right click on windows), most of the times his star is selected and the menu for the star appears (e.g. I ctrl-click on earth and the Sun get selected), then after using the menu, the planet is selected again.

If anyone experienced one of these problems and found a solution, pleease reply!

Anyway, great release. The new orbits are quite better.

I have a few questions, as I am confused by the number of code repositories and builds for Celestia

Is the latest code at https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia?

Can it be use to do a Mac build and if yes, what is the process?

Why not make full use of github.com features, such as tags and releases?
https://github.com/blog/1547-release-your-software

The Celestia binaries for all OS variants could then be nicely hosted on github.com. See this nice example:
https://github.com/openshift/origin/releases
