Projects/Edu/KStars/Binary File Test

< Projects‎ | Edu‎ | KStars
Jump to: navigation, search

Starting with KStars 1.5.0, star data in KStars is saved in a binary file format (that is explained here) designed for fast retrieval and loading of star data, and space optimization.

However, the code that loads these binary data files has not been tested on many platforms and hence, is likely to be buggy. Please help us fixing bugs by testing KStars on as many architectures and platforms as possible.

Please write reports of any tests here (both +ve and -ve). (Architectures are level-2 headlines and platforms are level-3 headlines)
