There is no Text User Interface (TUI)
Description: The TUI feature (used in planetariums) is not present in versions from 0.10.0 (beta) to 0.10.2. According to Fabien Chéreau, this feature should be recoded as a plugin. (source) As of March 2009, there is a development version of the plugin in the SVN repository (link).
