Bug Description

New upstream release of Kstars (2.9.4)

Blog post: http://knro.blogspot.co.uk/2018/04/spring-season-kstars-v294-is-released.html

New upstream release of libindi (1.7.1)

Changelog for 1.7.0 and 1.7.1: https://github.com/indilib/indi/releases

Kstars is mostly a bugfix release, but does contain one 'feature'.

From IRC:

[10:43] <Jasem[m]> acheronuk: It's mostly performance + bug fixes really. Maybe using SEP in Guiding module is a new feature.
[10:45] <acheronuk> Jasem[m]: Guiding module? is that enabled if not built with libindi?
[10:45] <Jasem[m]> acheronuk: nope libindi must be there. Hardly anyone would use KStars without libindi

We have for some time had too low a version of libindi in ubuntu to build kstars with support, and as you can see not doing so removes one of the largest benefits of kstars.

So we would like to update kstars with new libindi together. Upstream developers recommend the latest bugfix 1.7.1 of libindi as the latest kstars is tested with this.

The packages have been test built and can be found at: https://launchpad.net/~rikmills/+archive/ubuntu/kstarsffe

This is critically needed in Ubuntu as currently the libindi version provided is too old to be of any use with KStars. This leads to KStars getting built without INDI, which while technically optional, is a critical reason who many users would want to use KStars to control their devices.

I strongly recommend Ubuntu packages both libindi 1.7.1 and KStars 2.9.4 for Ubuntu 18.04

Rationale makes sense. Seeing that this request comes from the Kubuntu release team and the packages are seeded on Kubuntu only, I guess it makes sense to get it done ASAP. FFe approved.
