I have just installed the latest version of Stellarium (v.0.10.0) and am very impressed at how useful and easy to use it is, especially for planning a session with the scope. It is very comprehensive and has some really nice features (stars twinkle and you can even set the level of light pollution!). Some elements such as the foreground landscape can also be changed. Being a piece of Open Source software it should remain under constant development and free.
