globes releases

I just noticed that Celestia moved from 1.3.2 to 1.4.0. The release occurred late December 2005 (changelog). The software is available for Linux, MacOSX, and Windows.

Four days ago Lunar Software updated their Earthbrowser software to version 2.9. Here's a few of the improvements they list: "fixed problem with near real time satellite overlays", "significant speed improvements", "Universal Binary for Intel Macs", and "new and improved database engine". Earthbrowser runs on MacOS X 10.1 and Windows XP/2K.
