0.0: Introduction.

This information was obtained by browsing some of Celestia's source code at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/celestia/. I haven't looked at all of the files yet.

These notes were first written during the transition of Celestia from v1.2.4 to v1.2.5. Notes written later include a version number. For example, those written during the transition from v1.2.5 to v1.2.6 have "v1.2.6" associated with them. Most of them indicate features that are (or will be) new in the indicated version. If a section of notes does not include a recent version number, then most likely that's because I haven't reexamined the associated code since the indicated version, not because there were no changes.

Since Celestia is constantly undergoing rapid development, additional features may be available which are not mentioned here.
