    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.

    Announcing Subsurface 4.7.5

    The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.7.5 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux.

    This version of Subsurface makes a set of improvements in the Bluetooth integration, the planner, the map widget and the dive photo user interface.

    Some of the changes in Subsurface 4.7.5:

    • Compute plan variations in background to improve responsiveness
    • Improve profile rescaling in planner
    • Store the gas switch depth of a cylinder from the planner in the logbook file or git storage. No more need to reenter this value on replanning.
    • Improved handling of different information (divemaster, buddy, suit, notes) when merging two dives.
    • Limit min. GFlow to 10 and min. GFhigh to 40 in preferences for profile and planner
    • Fix issues related to debug logging on Windows
    • Add “Bluetooth mode” in the BT selection dialog: Auto, LE, Classical
    • Correct display of cylinder pressures for merged dives
    • Allow user defined cylinders as default in preferences
    • Tag-editing: comma entry shows all tags (again)
    • Printing: the bundled templates are now read-only and are always overwritten by the application. The first time the user runs this update, backup files of the previous templates would be created
    • Fix issues with filters not updating after changes to the dive list
    • Map-widget: allow updating coordinates on the map when the user is editing a dive site by pressing Enter or clicking a “flag” button
    • Map-widget: prevent glitches when the user is interacting with the map while animations are in progress
    • Planner: don’t accidentally enable o2breaks option when entering planner in recreational mode
    • Various small improvements in the dive photo UI

    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).

    You can get Subsurface 4.7.5 from these locations:

    Windows: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/subsurface-4.7.5.exe

    Mac: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/Subsurface-4.7.5.dmg

    Announcing Subsurface 4.7.4

    The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.7.4 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux.

    For those playing along, yes, because of a small maintainer-error we went from 4.7.2 straight to 4.7.4. The only difference from 4.7.3 to 4.7.4 is that 4.7.3 forgot to update to the latest translations.

    The big news for Linux users is that with Subsurface 4.7.4 the AppImage is back. Not only that, we now offer an automatically created AppImage for our ongoing development work directly from our GitHub releases page.

    Some of the other changes since Subsurface 4.7.2:

    • SmallUI fixes
    • Improvement to oxygen breaks code in planner
    • Write log messages into files when not started from a console on Windows
    • Improved detection of OpenGL versions (prevents potential crash on more operating systems with ancient gfx drivers)
    • Improve the map widget editing behavior. Allow updating the location of a marker that is being edited by entering new coordinates in the text field in “real-time”. Also, don’t place new markers at the 0,0 coordinate and instead place them at the current map center.

    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).

    You can get Subsurface 4.7.4 from these locations:

    Windows: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/subsurface-4.7.4.exe

    Mac: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/Subsurface-4.7.4.dmg

    Linux: A generic AppImage is available for download at the Subsurface GitHub Release page. Download Subsurface-a157fa5c6-x86_64.AppImage, make it executable
    chmod +x Subsurface-a157fa5c6-x86_64.AppImage and then simply run this file.
