It does not launch in 10.9.4.Don't know why but it is no loss because I have Kstars from MacPorts.

The Stellarium page states that version 0.12.3 is available as of Sept. 8... BUT the link for the new version yields version 0.12.2 at this point in time.

I tried again from the link at macupdate.com and also from the Developer's launchpad site -- still keeps on going and going and going.

I tried this link, and it worked just fine: http://sourceforge.net/projects/stellarium/files/Stellarium-MacOSX/0.11.4/

Ciao.

I tried downloading the new version twice, and it just keeps on going, never finishing the download.

I hope someone fixes this soon -- this is a terrific resource to more fully understand the evening sky.

Don't download the old stuff (0.11.1) here. The actual version is 0.11.2 and can be grabbed at:

Hi,

I cannot seem to use the “Intel–only” build of 0.11.0 on my 10.6.8 system (model iMac6,1 with C2D, and 24" display, and NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT).  The screen initially turns absolute–black, then other apps windows will eventually “uncover” parts of what we’re suppose to see there bit–by–bit.

OTOH the “universal” build of this same 0.11.0 is functioning adequately (altho mouse–drags are sticky & slow, it is usable here).

I’ll try filing a bug–report at their launchpad repo.
