The first version of Chakra Darshana was released around one year ago on December 23, 2015. Since then Chakra Darshana has come a long way and gained a lot of useful features and functionality, with 11 subsequent releases coming out in 2016. We would like to thank everybody who supported and contributed to this project in one way or another, including downloading and using the application, rating and leaving reviews, telling friends and students, sharing the information online, and contacting us with kind words and useful suggestions!

During this time there was one thing about Chakra Darshana that left something to be desired - it was black-and-white. Still, there were quite a few courageous astrologers who used the application despite these ascetic conditions, and we would like to thank them for their infinite patience! Miracles happen at Christmas and it is about time we remedy this situation, so Chakra Darshana 2.0.0 (a new major release) comes with a colorful interface:

As seen in the screenshot above, there are three kinds of entities that are colored: (1) lagna and grahas, (2) rāśis, according to the color of the graha that owns the respective rāśi, and (3) nakṣatras, according to the color of the graha that owns the respective nakṣatra.

In addition to the colors above, things that are generally auspicious are highlighted with green and those that are generally inauspicious are highlighted with red:

Since cells may have different sizes since version 1.6.0, cells now have a border drawn around them to help visually identify their size. In case you would like to omit the border (this may be reasonable with a small 2x3 grid on a phone), there is now a corresponding setting in “Display settings” section:

We have also updated atlas data with the newest one. During the process we learned that Czech Republic should now be called Czechia, so if you are searching the atlas for a city in the Czech Republic, you should now look in Czechia.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
