Current Version 5.0
Note: Version 5.0 is designed to work with Stellarium Versions 0.12.1 or later. If you are using the previous version 0.10.1 - 0.11.4 then the scripts will not work right, so download one of the older versions below. If you are using version 0.12.0 the scripts also won't work right, there was a bug in that version that caused an incorrect calculation in solar days which means these scripts will work not right.
In the last Stellarium Version 0.11.4, 0.12.0 and 0.12.1 for Windows 64Bit there is a bug in the scripting engine that causes many of these scripts to run slowly. See here for details. The 32 bit version is OK.
