Today you can download another update, which brings some great new features:
- Gas switch profile for printing
- Signature support
- Automatic update check
- Improved DiveSystem + Liquivision imports
- Many small improvements and bug fixes
You can now add the gas switch and warning graphic to your print layout using the report designer. Just double click in the report designer any existing profile or add a new profile and change the type to “Gas” or “Warning”. You may also want to adjust the FontScale property and disable the axis labels.
Your buddies can now sign your dives on the PC in the signature window using the mouse, a touch screen or a pen. It works best with a special pen for touchscreens, but you can also use your finger and if you don’t have a touchscreen you can use the mouse to create a graphical signature. Just click the signature control in the logbook window to open a resizable popup window and sign this dive.
Diving Log checks now every 30 days if there is an update available and notifies you on startup. If you don’t want this automatic check, you can disable it in the update check window (menu Help > Check for Updates). Only official updates will show up, so beta updates like this one won’t be recognized. This function is mainly to avoid people using really old versions. Those of you reading this blog probably won’t ever see this update notification, because you update before the next check anyways. But I recommend that you keep this setting enabled.
Before you download this update, make sure you have already version 5.0.5 installed, otherwise update first to that version. Then download
this zip file and extract it into the Diving Log program folder (this is not an installer, just copy the content of the zip file into the Diving Log folder).
