Announcing Subsurface 4.8.1

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.8.1 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux.

This version brings a number of small bug-fixes and a couple of new features.

Some of the changes in Subsurface 4.8:

Binaries are available for Windows, Mac, and an AppImage for x86-64 Linux (plus distribution specific binaries for a number of Linux flavors including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, and openSUSE). Please note that distributions based on Ubuntu 18.04 are currently not supported with distribution specific binaries due to a change in the way Qt is packaged in the latest Ubuntu version.

You can get Subsurface 4.8.1 from these locations:

Windows: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/subsurface-4.8.1.exe

Mac: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/Subsurface-4.8.1.dmg

Again, Ubuntu 18.04 based releases currently aren’t supported by this.

Subsurface-mobile

At the same time we are also releasing the version 2.1 of Subsurface-mobile, a full fledged dive log program for iOS and Android devices. Subsurface-mobile allows you to access your dive log on your tablet or phone, edit the data and even download new dive information from many Bluetooth LE dive computers (on iOS) and from many Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE dive computers (and even some dive computers that require a download cable — but there things get more complicated) on Android. Using a free Subsurface Cloud Storage account you can synchronize your dive data with the Subsurface desktop application (while significantly increasing the usefulness, the cloud account is not required to use Subsurface-mobile).

Some of the changes in Subsurface-mobile 2.1:

  • BLE support: fix several issues with BLE download
  • fix potential crash when editing manually added dives
  • fix missing profiles when manually adding dives or editing such dives
  • when transitioning from NoCloud mode to cloud storage, keep the dives already stored locally
  • add cloud storage user name to global drawer banner
  • add button to About page to copy logs to clipboard; this makes it easier to provide the required information when reporting issues
  • adjusted size of About page for small screen (no scrolling)
  • download page now remembers last used connection
  • recalculate derived values after dive edit
  • show the correct profile after manually adding a dive / editing a manually added dive
  • fold dive trips to give better overview for large dive lists
  • fix using current GPS position when editing or adding dives
  • iOS: adjusted launch page to be centered
  • Android: fix broken FTDI download on Android devices that allow us access to their /dev directory (still, many devices don’t support the way Subsurface-mobile accesses USB devices via OTG adapters)

You can get Subsurface-mobile in the respective App Stores. Please check out the Subsurface-mobile v2 user manual.

As everything we do, Subsurface-mobile is free and open source. No ads, no commercial anything. And it comes with free cloud storage (if you decide to use that — it’s optional). Your data aren’t used for anything, nothing gets monetized.

As with the desktop version, please post questions of problems in the User Forum or file a bug in our Bug Tracker.

    Announcing Subsurface-mobile 2.0.1 for Android and iOS

    The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 2.0.1 of Subsurface-mobile, a full fledged dive log program for iOS and Android devices. Subsurface-mobile allows you to access your dive log on your tablet or phone, edit the data and even download new dive information from many Bluetooth LE dive computers (on iOS) and from many Bluetooth and Bluetooth LE dive computers (and even some dive computers that require a download cable — but there things get more complicated) on Android. Using a free Subsurface Cloud Storage account you can synchronize your dive data with the Subsurface desktop application (while significantly increasing the usefulness, the cloud account is not required to use Subsurface-mobile).

    Subsurface-mobile 2.0.1 brings a few minor improvements in the UI and support for a few additional dive computers on Android when compared to Subsurface-mobile 2.0, but it represents a significant overhaul of the user interface when compared to Subsurface-mobile 1.2, which until today was the latest version on available on iOS. With Subsurface-mobile 2.0.1 you get better structure, better visuals, better menus, better editing… a lot of our focus went into turning this into a better, visually more attractive and easier to use application.

    Subsurface-mobile 2.0.1 for iOS also adds the GPS functionality that had always been available in the Android version of Subsurface-mobile. With the exception of the lack (for hardware reasons) of classic Bluetooth and serial dive computer support in iOS, the two applications are now otherwise at feature parity.

    You can get Subsurface-mobile in the respective App Stores. Please check out the Subsurface-mobile v2 user manual.
    Please report any issues you may run into in our user forum

    As everything we do, Subsurface-mobile is free and open source. No ads, no commercial anything. And it comes with free cloud storage (if you decide to use that — it’s optional). Your data aren’t used for anything, nothing gets monetized.
