Diving Log beta update

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

I’ve updated the latest beta version with some new features and improvements:

You can download the latest beta version (6.0.13 Update 3) from the same location as the previous beta:

If you’ve downloaded the full installer, you can either overwrite your existing Diving Log installation or use it as new installation on a test system. If you’ve downloaded the zip file, please make sure you’ve already installed the latest version 6.0.13. Then copy the content of the zip file into the existing Diving Log program folder, overwriting the existing files.

New: Apnea Dives:

Diving Log shows the dive time for scuba dives in full minutes. When a dive is shorter than 5 minutes, Diving Log will automatically switch to minutes:seconds (mm:ss), which is better for apnea (free) dives. The dive profile will show the x-axis in seconds instead of minutes. You can enter dives shorter than 5 minutes in mm:ss format or as decimal value (e.g. 0.5 = 30 seconds).

Once you’ve backed up your logbook, you can either download a full installer or just a zip file, which you can extract into your existing Diving Log 6.0.13 program folder:

Diving Log 6.0.13 released

Friday, April 13th, 2018

The latest update of Diving Log 6.0 contains the following new features and improvements:

  • Garmin Descent Mk1 Import (*.fit files)
  • Scubapro Z1 Import (*.txt export from Android App)
  • Shearwater Cloud Desktop Import
  • Scubapro G2 Console (G2C) und HW OSTC 2 TR Download
  • Deepblu Web Download Update
  • Mini map in dive site details (see below)
  • Map option to switch to blue/white dive flag (see below)
  • Custom layouts performance improvements (read more below)
  • Option to disable default entries in logbook dropdown lists (see below)
  • Statistics: multiple tank consumption calculation fixed

Custom layouts performance improvements:

When creating your own layout files, the file size increased constantly because of some garbage that was saved (AvailableItems list). This has slowed down the performance of the logbook window. Diving Log now clears this garbage automatically when you save a layout file. If you’re using your own logbook layout, I recommend you save the file again to clear up any potential garbage and increase the window loading performance.

Other improvements:

Mini map in dive site details

Map option to switch to blue/white dive flag

Option to disable default entries in logbook dropdown lists

Diving Log 6.0.12 released

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available with the following new features and improvements:

  • Deepblu Cosmiq Web Download
  • New dive computers added in downloader (libdivecomputer update)
  • Android USB Sync improved (“Target folder not found” fixed)
  • Print report designer, trip and shop name available
  • Downloader altitude import (some models)
  • Bailout & Diluent output in profile fixed for high DPI screens
  • UDDF Import improved

You can now download and import your dives from the Deepblu Cosmiq online logbook, using the new sync function in the “Web” toolbar menu. A direct download from the dive computer to Diving Log is not possible at the moment, so you still need the Deepblu app on your phone or tablet.

Special thanks to Sander Van de Moortel, who provided the necessary information to create this downloader!

Diving Log 6.0.11 released

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available with the following new features:

  • New Tank Pressure 1-3 Combined profile
  • New Tank Pressure (Calculated) Profile
  • Tank Gauge Improvements
  • Tanklist variables in Report Designer (all tanks)
  • Android MTP Sync in Windows Creators Update fixed
  • Ratio Divelogger 4 Import

If you don’t have an air-integrated dive computer, you can now view a calculated tank pressure profile, based on your SAC rate and depth profile. The result is surprisingly good (I’ve compared numerous recorded and calculated tank profiles). Below you can see a 70m dive with measured tank profile on top and calculated tank profile on bottom:

Measured and calculated tank profile

Here you can see another example of a dive with two tanks (sidemount) and several switches between both tanks. The calculated profile is almost identical to the measured profile of the two tanks:

Calculated tank profile with two tanks

You can see, even without air integrated dive computer you can now get a detailed tank profile in Diving Log. The tank gauge on the right is also using the calculated profile if no tank sensor data is present.

If you are diving with more than one tank pressure sensor, you can now view optionally all 3 tank profiles merged into one graphic:

3 Tank profiles in one graphic

And last but not least you can finally add the data of all tanks in the report designer to your print layouts. The data is provided in the form of several “LogTankList…” variables, which contain each data type (e.g. tank size) of all tanks in form of a list. You can combine them and get a nice table view of all your tanks:

All tanks in the report designer

Diving Log 6.0.10 released

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 has been released. It brings the following new features and improvements:

  • Galileo G2 support
  • Google satellite map fix
  • LogTrak import improvements
  • Mares Dive Organizer import fix
  • Excel profile data export fixes
  • Surface interval calculation fix

Jef Driesen from libdivecomputer did a great job and added download support for the Scubapro Galileo G2 via USB. Please note, if you want to download the G2 with Diving Log, you have to download an additional zip file and copy the contents to the Diving Log program folder (overwriting the existing files). I cannot deliver this version with the automatic update at the moment, because it breaks the downloader for Atomic Cobalt users.

If you want to support Jef and libdivecomputer, please click the “Donate” button at the bottom of the project page.

I’ve also fixed the Google Satellite map view in the dive site map window. The LogTrak import is optimized for the G2 data and the Mares Dive Organizer import updated to the latest format. The Surface interval calculation is fixed for inverted dive list ordering.

Diving Log 6.0.9 released

Monday, May 29th, 2017

A new maintenance update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available. It fixes some critical issues and includes some minor features:

  • Ratio iX3M Firmware 4.0 Support
  • New Libdivecomputer version
  • Downloader: DiveSystem computer also listed under Ratio
  • Signature “Dot” support
  • Scubase Import improved
  • Fixed a security issue when parsing XML files

Because of the XML security issue you should update to Diving Log 6.0.9 before opening any XML based files (e.g. UDDF or layout files) from untrusted sources. Those files could contain malicious code that would be executed when reading these files with older Diving Log versions. This issue has been fixed in Diving Log 6.0.9.

The latest libdivecomputer version supports also the Ratio iX3M Firmware 4.0, which was released recently. The buddy signature tool can draw now real “dots” when clicking or tapping.

Signature with dot

The next signature version will have also a higher resolution format to improve the quality of the strokes.

Diving Log 6.0.8 released

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 has been released with the following new features and improvements:

  • Downloader new computers: Hollis DG02, Aqualung i750TC, Cressi Drake, Sherwood Vision
  • Logbook red cursor line keyboard support
  • Several performance improvements in logbook window
  • Facebook Share profile graphic fixed for High DPI displays
  • Buddy signature full screen support
  • Cochran *.can files import
  • Oceanlog import dive types
  • Equipment & City sort order options

Red cursor line can be moved with keyboard

The red cursor line in the profile graphic can now be moved with the arrow keys on your keyboard. The HOME and END keys jump to the start and end of the profile. The arrow keys will snap to each profile point, which is great for analyzing the profile point by point.

The logbook window had also some performance issues in the past which are now fixed, e.g. fast typing (especially comments), fast navigating within the dive list or the profile crosshair. The root of these performance issues was the drop shadow below the ribbon toolbar. Once I’ve removed the shadow effect, the performance issues were finally gone.

The new Facebook Share feature from version 6.0.7 was not working correctly on high DPI screens. This has been fixed in this update as well. Signing dives on touch screens with a pen is now easier, because you can switch the signature window into full screen with the new touch optimized toolbar. This avoids any accidentally taps on other controls.

And last but not least great news for Cochran users: you can finally import *.can files from Cochran Analyst® into Diving Log!
