I've built a test package of VirtualPlanet 2.0, you can find on my copr repo mattia/Astronomy . The new version introduces planet Jupiter and its main moons. I've divided historical textures package from base textures package to maintain package sizes low.
The developer asks  to test it with different graphics hardware, especially with nVidia graphic cards (I'm running AMD/ATI).
I would also be interested if anyone using wayland can test it (I'm with KDE and Xorg).
