--- New feature for inclined satellites:
All satellites that have a maximum inclination of more than
0.5 degrees are now listed with "(incl.)" and the maximum
inclination on the three chart indexes. Clicking on "(incl.)"
takes you directly to SatTracker for that satellite, so you
easy can see the current inclination in real-time.

--- New feature in SatTracker:
The maximum inclination is now added to SatTracker, so you can
check this value for all satellites, and not only the satellites
that are inclined more than 0.5 degrees.
