Marble 1.3.0 and “Marble Touch” Released

Marble 1.3 has been released with lots of new gems: Marble — the virtual globe and world atlas — now integrates with KDE Plasma. By allowing for coordinate and bookmark searches, Marble can be opened directly from the Plasma search bar.

The new Elevation Profile shows the incline of routes, which can be edited interactively.

Stargazers can view and track Earth satellites thanks to Marble participation in the European Space Agency (ESA) Summer of Code in Space.

During Google Summer of Code, Marble gained initial support for display of .osm (OpenStreetMap) files in vector format.

Owners of the Nokia N9/N950 are the first to receive the new mobile application Marble Touch.
