Hello Jasem,

Windows version misses KF5Package.dll. Kstars can not be launched.

Jasem et al,

I also would like to offer thanks to everyone involved with this project - it is a pleasure to use and improving all the time.

Sometimes I notice new features and think what a good idea.

Thanks for this new version!

Strangely enough, I installed it on my Ubuntu 20.04 LTS system and 3.4.3 got installed, but my 18.04 LTS got the 3.4.2 version instead!? Strange.

Unfortunately, Launchpad is not building any packages now due to some issue. I will try to build as soon as it is up.

As a work around, Sonny486 has posted a version of the missing file that works on Windows.
