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.

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!

  • Divesite map in logbook window
  • Tanklist in logbook window
  • Extended Layout updated
  • DAN Diver Safety Guardian Upload

Diving Log 6.0.5 released

Saturday, June 4th, 2016

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

  • Diving Log for Android Sync via USB and Dropbox
  • USB Sync for MTP connected Android devices
  • Downloader (New: Cochran, Shearwater Perdix, Cressi Newton, Aqualung i450T, Aladin Sport, Aqualung i300, Beuchat Mundial)

  • New Aqualung Diverlog Import
  • Subsurface Import improvements
  • LogTrack Import improvements for Mantis M2
  • Fix: When using autostart, update check does not block the application anymore
  • Bug Fixes

USB Sync for MTP connected Android devices

Syncing with Android devices via USB is now a lot easier. In the past, you could not save your logbook file directly to the device when it was connected in MTP mode, which almost all devices do nowadays. Instead you would have to save the file to the PC and copy it manually in Windows Explorer.

With this update you can now sync to (and from) the Android device directly even in MTP mode. In the upper left corner the device should show up and Diving Log will sync directly to the correct folder. This works for all compatible Android dive log apps (Diving Log, DiveMate, etc.):

Diving Log 6.0.3 released

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

Today I’ve released a new update for Diving Log 6.0, with the following new features and improvements:

  • New AV Manager (Underwater Technologies) import
  • DiveSystem DiveLogger import improvements
  • Shearwater Desktop import improvements
  • Poseidon MkVI import improvements
  • Subsurface import improvements
  • Mares Dive Organizer import improvements
  • New Libdivecomputer
  • Download dive computer memory dump
  • Signature popup for unlinked buddies
  • iOS Sync improvements
  • Logbook table summary fix (imperial units)
  • Bug Fixes

Download dive computer memory dump

When there is a problem with the dive computer downloader (e.g. error message or wrong data), you typically have to send some analysis data to Jef Driesen from libdivecomputer. In the past this was a bit cumbersome and required downloading a separate command line tool and executing it in a DOS prompt. This is now a lot easier, because it is built directly into the Diving Log downloader:

Log Errors and Dump File

Log Errors and Dump File

All you have to do is expanding the “Advanced Settings” section in the downloader and check the “Log Errors” and “Dump File” checkboxes (the “Dump File” box is only visible when the “Log Errors” box is already checked. For some dive computer models this function is not available). When both options are selected, you can download your dive computer normally. After the download, Diving Log will package the error log and the dump file into a zip file and prompt you to save the file to your PC. Then you can email it to Jef or me.

Signature popup for unlinked buddies

Previously, the signature popup was only visible for linked buddies (those with a chain icon). Now it is also available for unlinked buddies (with a pencil icon). That way you can easily view signatures without adding the signature field into your layout.

Logbook table summary fix (imperial units)

The summary in the table window was displayed in metric units, even if you’re using imperial units. This has been fixed and depth/temperature summary is now displayed correctly:

  • Update for Suunto Dive Manager 5 Import

Diving Log 6.0 Beta 8

Saturday, May 23rd, 2015

A new update for Diving Log 6.0 is now available, which includes the dive computer downloader and all import functions. This update has also completed localizations for Italian, Swedish, Finnish, Polish, Turkish and Catalan in addition to German, Spanish, Hungarian and Japanese from the previous release.

There is now a single dive computer downloader in version 6.0 which is more streamlined and cleaned up:

Please try it out and also the import functions you typically use, to see if everything works as expected. Note to OSTC users: there are currently some features missing, e.g. the dive computer settings page or the simulator. They will be added to the “Tools” menu of the main window in a future update. In the meantime, please use the version 5.0 downloader if you need one of these features.

Btw, I still need some help to complete the localization for Czech, Norwegian and Russian.

Diving Log 5.0.15 released

Monday, November 24th, 2014

You can download a new update for Diving Log 5.0 with the following new features:

  • Suunto Dive Manager 5 Support
  • Divelogs.de Sync Update (multiple tanks)
  • SAC Calculation improvement for sidemount dives
  • SAC Calculation multiple tank average improvement
  • Universal Downloader update
  • Japanese Language Support
  • Bug fixes

The Universal Download is now using the latest libdivecomputer, which supports some new header data as well as new dive computer models: Suunto EON Steel, Subgear XP-3G, Aeris F11, Aeris A300CS, Mares Airlab. Many thanks to Jef Driesen for his continuous work! If you want to support libdivecomputer, you can donate on the project website.

The SAC calculation has been improved to better support sidemount dives. Up to now, tanks used during the dive has to be used in the dive profile in order to calculate the correct SAC rate. That makes sense for dives with multiple gases, because you have to switch the gas/tank to get correct deco calculations. When diving with sidemount tanks, you have the same gas and switch a lot during the dive. However you don’t switch anything in the dive computer, because you use the same gas. For these dives, the SAC rate is now calculated correctly. All tanks, which are not assigned to some part of the profile, will be added automatically to the first tank in the tank & gas window. This works even for dives which don’t have a dive profile. You only have to make sure that the first tank in the list is actually one of the sidemount tanks.

The average SAC calculation for multiple tank dives has been improved to reflect the actual dive time of the tank. A high SAC rate tank during a short period of time is now weighted less for the average SAC rate of this dive.

And last but not least, Diving Log is now available in Japanese! Thank you very much to Hiroyuki Yamada, who not only translated the desktop version, but also Diving Log Touch and Diving Log for Windows Phone! This was a lot of work and I’m sure the Japanese Diving Log users will be really happy.
