Title: Release 0.2.5-svn1328
Post by: Ingar on 2013-09-30 00:07:25
With the the summer behind us, a new release might be just the thing to cheer up a misty autumn evening. Release 0.2.5-svn1328, with more space and more particles, is now available from the downloads page.

The data download is much smaller than the previous release: I converted all PNG sky and planet textures to JPEG. This does not affect SVN.
