Release notes:

Released 2017-03-21
Github Release

The Stellarium development team after three months of development is proud to announce the second correcting release of Stellarium in series 0.15.x - version 0.15.2. This version contains few closed bugs (ported from series 1.x) and some new additions and improvements.

We have updated the configuration file and the Solar System file, so if you have an existing Stellarium installation, we highly recommended reset the settings when you will install the new version (you can choose required points in the installer).

A huge thanks to our community whose contributions help to make Stellarium better!
