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.

Trip and Shop Management

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

You can now manage your trips and holidays in Diving Log. Trips are a great way to group and organize dives and buddies in your logbook:

Trip Management

Add people who have participated in this trip

Add a group picture of this trip

You can select the trip and dive center for each dive and group that way dives in a logical way. Dives for each trip can then be viewed in the tree browser:

Select trip and dive center in the extended layout

View dives of each trip in the tree browser

You can enter now also addresses of dive shops, dive centers, dive schools, etc. in the new shop management dialog. It is very similar to the buddy management dialog, but is for contact information from organizations and the like:

Shops and Dive Centers

These features will be available in the next beta in a few days.

Diving Log 5.0 – Hierarchical Browser

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

Before I talk about the new “Hierarchical Browser” in Diving Log 5.0, I want to show you another feature in the table editor I’ve wrote about in my last blog entry. Due to a recent user request who wanted sort (renumber) only a range of dives I’ve added to the table editor also a “renumber” function which makes it possible to select a range of dives and only renumber these dives with any start number. This gives you the possibility to create “gaps” in your logbook, e.g. if you want to log only dives 1 – 10, 50 – 150 and then starting from 300, for example. This is not easily possible in Diving Log 4.0 which could only renumber all dives at once.

The new “Hierarchical Browser” replaces (or better merge) the existing location, buddy and dive type statistics you see in Diving Log 4.0. These 3 windows are now included in one tree view window with a single list view on the right side. You can navigate through the several levels and drill down to the single dives which match the criteria (not possible in 4.0).

You can copy the list on the right side in an Excel compatible format and I’ve added also another tree which allows you to browse the dives chronological:
