tested in the RC

Needed to do some checks in a planetarium program. Wanted to use Stellarium... Checked the John Kim Chi computer. I had uninstalled Stellarium. Huh.

OK. Given the clean slate, let's download the release candidate, I thought.

Took a bit of digging but I finally found the place in GitHub. Transferred then loaded.

Right. Now, out of curiousity, I activated the Telescope Control plug-in and restarted.

Made a simulator profile (no issues with that process either), then connected.

Displayed the "slew to" window.

Look at that!

slew to window with new abort button

An Abort Slew button, at last.

It even works in the simulator!
