A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available, with the following features and improvements:
- Profile-Compare feature
- Downloader: support for new computers
- New Hollis Explorer import
- Subsurface import improvements
- MacDive import improvements
- Excel export improvements
- Fixed: main window seems to freeze when autostart and update notification overlay each other
- Bug Fixes
The update will be automatically installed when you start Diving Log the next time. To force the update, click the menu “Help > Check for updates”.
Please note, in the current Diving Log version which you’ve installed, the update notification could be overlaid by the autostart window (e.g. logbook window) and it seems the application is locked up. To fix it, press either two times Alt-Tab and if that does not help to bring the update notification to the front, kill the application in the task manager and start it again. Then check for updates manually after it has launched. This bug should be fixed in the current update.
A note to all Windows 10 Insider Preview users: There seems to be a bug in the latest Insider Build 14279 of Windows 10, which prevents Diving Log 6.0 to start correctly (there is a System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException). I’m not sure if all languages are affected, it currently looks like it affects only German versions of Windows. I recommend you wait and do not update to Build 14279. Other .NET WPF applications also seem to be affected. As this is a Windows or .NET Framework bug, I cannot fix this from my side. Again, this is only the insider preview (beta) of Windows 10, not the normal (stable) version. If you’ve already updated to Build 14279, you can revert to the previous build in the Windows settings app. See also this (German) forum post
