I just wanted t let everyone know that Gpredict 2.2.1 has been released. This release fixes some bugs that prevented windows users from updating the TLE data. It also improves the layout of the TLE sources editor.
Gpredict is a real-time satellite tracking and orbit prediction application. It can track an unlimited number of satellites and display their position and other data in lists, tables, maps, and polar plots (radar view). Gpredict can also predict the time of future passes for a satellite, and provide you with detailed information about each pass. Gpredict will also allow you to track satellites relatively to different observer locations – at the same time. Gpredict is free software licensed under the GNU General Public License.
Gpredcit has its own product website at http://gpredict.oz9aec.net/
Gpredict 2.2 released
I’m happy to announce that Gpredict 2.2 has been released 🙂
Gpredict 2.0 released
I’m happy to announce that Gpredict 2.0 has been released! This release accumulates many features and bug fixes that have been done over the last six years.
Gpredict on Android
Today we have a guest post by Kirill Snezhko (@argrento) who describes how to get Gpredict working on Android tablets. Note that this is not about a native Android port of Gpredict, but how to get Linux installed as an Android app and run Linux applications like Gpredict.
Daily Gpredict builds for Ubuntu
Thanks to Jan Simon, DL2ZXA, we now have daily builds of Gpredict for Ubuntu 10.04 – 12.04, both 32 and 64 bit. Jan’s recipe fetches the code imported from SourceForge, merges it with the translations done in the Launchpad, then builds the packages and puts them in the Gpredict teams Daily builds PPA. You can use this PPA as you would use any other PPA; if you don’t know how check out the instructions on the PPA page. Obviously, this is only recommended for testing and not for production use.
Module-wide satellite selection in Gpredict
Up until now, users of Gpredict could click on a satellite in any view to make that satellite selected. For most views, selecting a satellite meant highlighting it and showing some additional info about it, or for the case of single satellite view to display the data for that satellite. In case you are not familiar with the terms module and view in Gpredict, a module is a logical object which groups a number of satellites and a ground station together, while views are the display widgets used to visualize the satellite data in different ways like map, list, polar plot, etc. A module can have any number of views laid out in a grid.

Gpredict 1.3 released
Gpredict 1.3 has been packaged and released. The source code is already available from the SourceForge download site. Binary packages will follow soon.
Improved search in the Gpredict saetllite selector
Charles AA1VS has done some cool tweaking to the search functionality in the Gpredict satellite selector. Check out the video below to see how it works.

Automatic update in the sky at a glance view
The Sky at a glance time line view in Gpredict 1.3 is updating itself as time passes. This video demo shows this feature in highly throttled simulated real time mode as well as in manual time control mode.

Gpredict 1.2 released
After one year of development, bug fixing and testing we have decided that it was time to make a new release of Gpredict. This release features several new features such as the rewritten layout engine as well as lots of bug fixes.
