New public beta version available

Monday, August 13th, 2018

I’m excited to announce the public beta of the next update for Diving Log 6.0, which you can download today. This update has a lot of new features which require a logbook database update, so please make sure to backup your logbook before downloading this update! 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:

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.

If you’re interested in translating the new features to your language (other than English and German), please contact me.

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!

Friday, May 13th, 2016

Your buddy can now sign your dives in Diving Log on your Android phone or tablet. Open a dive and scroll down to the bottom to find the new signature field. Tap on the field to sign a dive with your finger or digitizer pen. The signature will sync back to Diving Log on Windows where it can be displayed and printed.

Available on Google Play

In the desktop version you can view the signature either in the buddy popup menu or add it directly to your layout. When you click on the signature, it will open in a new window where you can sign dives also on a Windows PC with your mouse or touch screen. And last but not least you can add and print the signature in the report designer for your physical logbook.
