Celestia has gone through quite a few versions since it was first made available in the late 1990s. Some of the older versions are still available from SourceForge .
- The next major release of Celestia, v1.7.0, is currently under development.
- If the user interface changes to QT, which will be common to all operating systems, it may be called v2.0.
- See the Development instructions if you'd like to try compiling the "pre-alpha" version yourself. It's very easy to do under Windows, at least.
- Celestia v1.6.1 will be only a bug-fix release.
- V1.6.1 has been delayed due to an intractable problem in the MacOS version.
- Celestia v1.6.0 was made available on July 10, 2009.
- Please visit the Celestia Web forum: Celestia 1.6.0 released for details.
- Celestia v1.5.0 was made available on January 26, 2008.
- Please visit the Celestia Web forum : Celestia 1.5.0 is ready for details.
