There are two ways to compile Marble: As a KDE 4 version and as a Qt4-only version (you need to invoke CMake with -DQTONLY="ON" for the latter).
For the KDE-Edu evaluation, please compile it as with any other KDE application. The docs are available as usual in kdereview/doc/marble.
I'd like to thank everyone who has been involved with the development of Marble so far.
There are two known issues which I'll fix pretty soon: the coastlines don't display properly at high zoom levels (for reasons I'm aware of) and the Wikipedia browser doesn't display images (for reasons I'm aware of). Apart from that it should work as advertised.
Of course there are more things on the TODO:
- Further Wikipediaization
- Automatic tile downloading (which is close to done)
- Adding D-Bus support to KAtlasView (soon to be renamed to MarbleView) and adding KPart support to KAtlasControl (soon to be renamed to MarbleWidget).
- Adding Get Hot New Stuff support for custom maps.
- Improved KML support
- GPS support
- Flat 2D View (Equirectangular projection)
