KStars v3.1.0 is released #35605
Thanks very much for the hard work that has led to this release!

I am very sorry but I noticed an issue with the macOS release. for some reason I cannot open the KStars Preferences. Not via the macOS shortcut CMD-, nor via File -> Preferences. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

KStars v3.1.0 is released #35606
Hi Jasem,

I have just tried installing v3.1.0 Previously using 3.0 with no issues. This warning keeps coming up
" The code execution cannot proceed because lcms-1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."
Reinstalling has not resolved the issue

Cheers.

Mike

Wouter,

I can confirm this issue. However, you can still option it from Ekos summary screen --> Options. We'll look into this ASAP.

Mike,

Please try to download again, I uploaded the official KDE version which is 1-day older but works.

There will be likely 3.1.1 depending on the feedback.

Thanks for this new release. I am look forward to test it under clear sky. Unfortunately weather is not with me.
I just jumped to the liveview viewer. I was hopping to find a zoom available for the Nikon devices. Unfortunately it looks like gphoto doesn't provide a zoom on liveview for Nikon. I don't know how is the resolution of the liveview but if it is the native resolution of the sensor, would it be possible to have a software zoom ?

Thanks for the quick feedback. Yes, via the Ekos summary screen it works. I downloaded the dmg installer again but the issue remains. In any case, I can get to the KStars preferences now again so thanks very much for that!

The resolution of the liveview is the resolution of your rear screen. 640*426 on my D750.
A software zoom on this wouldn't give you much more precision. Try to save a frame from your liveview feed and you'll see your own resolution.

Wouter,

Yes you are right, I think I noticed this Preferences bug a couple of weeks ago, but I was too busy to look into it and then I forgot about it. Let's check into what happened to that Menu command.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Jasem,

Thanks for your very prompt reply. I can confirm that the 3.1.0 downloaded today from the KDE site works as expected.

Many thanks for you and your team's fine work.

Wouter,

I Just took a look. I don't think the Preferences bug is a KStars bug at all. It looks like a KDE bug. The slot works correctly. The call to create the menu item seems to work and is just like the other ones that do work. So I don't think this is our bug. We should probably report it to KDE. Plus, we didn't change the KStars Preferences code at all.

Thanks.

Rob

Can you please run kstars with lldb to get the actual crash information along with detailed log output? The log doesn't show anything that I can see.

Please set the logging to "verbose" and "default" instead of "file". And turn on the logging of whatever is relevant to what is causing your crash.

Then just type these two commands in a terminal window:

lldb /Applications/KStars.app
run

Then try to make it crash and send the terminal output of whatever happens. This way the log information is recorded along with the crash information.

Thanks,

Rob
