Version 4.5.3 of AstroGrav has several minor improvements and bug fixes, including the following.

  • A bug has been fixed that could occasionally cause bizarre and obviously incorrect behavior during evolution, with the Planets, All Moons sample simulation being a good example of this problem.
  • A manually drawn angle on a view window can now have one or both of its endpoints attached to an object.
  • A manually drawn angle on a view window now displays while the mouse is being dragged, instead of only after its button has been released.
  • A manually drawn angle on a view window can now be cancelled while dragging the mouse, by putting the endpoint close to the start point.
  • The angular diameter has been added to the information displayed in the view window popup of an object.
  • In solar system simulations, additional information has been added to a view window popup when the Alt key is depressed. This information includes right ascension, declination, azimuth, altitude, rise time, transit time, and set time, when appropriate.
  • The time that a view window popup remains visible has been increased from 4 seconds to 6 seconds.
  • A bug has been fixed that prevented the Edit / Split Object... command from working correctly.
