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).

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.

Deepblu Cosmiq Download

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

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!

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 ISCan APECS 4 Import
  • 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 for Android Update

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

I’ve released an update for Diving Log on Android with the following new features:

  • Add new dive based on previous dive
  • DiveMate Import
  • Camera Capture
  • Photo full screen image viewer

When tapping on the add button (+) in the main screen, you can now either add an empty dive or use the last dive as a template. That will duplicate the last dive and you don’t have to fill in all data again.

If DiveMate is installed you can also import new dives from DiveMate directly into your Diving Log logbook on Android. That way you can download your dive computer with DiveMate and import the new dives (make sure you export to “DivingLog” format in DiveMate).

You can now also take photos with the camera and add these images to your logbook. And last but not least tapping on an image will show the full resolution image in the Android gallery photo viewer with pinch to zoom support (this works only for images that were added with the latest Diving Log app on Android).

Available on Google Play

In DiveMate, tap on “Tools > Backup & Sync > File export > DivingLog 5/6”. Then you can import the dives into Diving Log on Android or Windows.

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:
