KStars now supports 100 million stars!

The only trouble I have is with uploading the catalog. It’s 1.2 GB bzipped!!

The stars are the brightest 135 million from the USNO NOMAD catalog.

KStars does freeze to a good extent when zooming into Sagittarius / heavy Milky Way regions even at reasonable star densities. Probably it is worth optimizing the draw loop after all.
