Sky Calendar labelled at last!

Finally, Jason’s Sky Calendar tool gets some (not all) labels! KStars 1.5.0 was released without these labels in place, so a user running the Sky Calendar would just see a whole bunch of coloured lines, making no sense; but that’s no longer the case.

Here’s a screenshot of what the Sky Calendar looks like now:

I also changed the font from Courier New to Monospace, because I didn’t like the former much.

There are quite a few problems with the Sky Calendar left as yet – for instance, it breaks down at high latitudes – or outputs far too many labels. Besides, some lines (particularly the ones at the corners) are not labelled because the labelling condition isn’t foolproof. Any help with improving this tool is most welcome 🙂
