Release Notes: A couple of show stopper bugs were fixed. The default xplanet source installs into /usr/local/share/xplanet, while Ubuntu and others install into /usr/share/xplanet, which confuses the installer for Global Village. The fix is to uninstall the /usr/local/share/xplanet, then re-install with ./configure --prefix=/usr/ and then install 0.0.9-3 Global Village. Before runing Global Village, enter "gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/globalvillage" which will give you a clean slate from which to start.
Release Notes: Some plugins have been fixed.
Release Notes: A map manager plugin was added. It lets you select a planetary body, and drag and drop from the file browser onto the list or the specific buttons to add maps. You can also drag and drop to rearrange the order. The right mouse button can be used to pop up a remove window, just as with the cities plugin. For planets other than Earth, the first map in the list is used. Earth is treated as a special case. Global Village will divide the maps up equally thoughout the year, so if you have 3 maps, the map will be changed every 121 days. Other minor fixes were made. The installer now places a menu item in the Graphics sub-menu of the main GNOME menu, and support was added for the -origin option of Xplanets in the "Advanced Options" of the main window. Changes to the fires plugin have introduced bugs.
Release Notes: Fixes were made for the preview bug and the bash script in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin. After installing, you can just type "globalvillage" into a terminal to start it.
