Announcing Subsurface 4.6

The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 4.6 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Some of the changes since Subsurface 4.5.6:

 

User interface changes
Heatmap visualization of deco tissue loading
Re-designed Facebook access from Subsurface
Improved handling and visualisation of dive computer events in dive profile (grouping them into info, warning and alert — best supported on Suunto EON Steel)
Display surface interval as well as dive runtime prominently in planner
Dive list indicates whether dives have associated photos
Add —user= command line argument that allows switching between different users from the command line
Add —cloud-timeout= command line argument that allows to wait longer (or shorter, for that matter) before we time out waiting for cloud storage. Very useful when in areas with poor internet connectivity
Separate deco models for log and planner
Many translation updates
 
Imports and exports
Add support for importing Underwater Technologies AV1 log files
Add DAN DL7 import
Many fixes and improvements to CVS importer
Bugfix for parsing AP Divesight dive log
Fixes to Divelogs.de import and export
Fixes to UDDF exporter
SmartTrack .slg import (not available through the main application — a custom importer can be built using the Subsurface sources)
 
Errors resolved
Fixed problems opening pictures from picture tab
Fixed spurious errors when saving to cloud storage
Better handling of slow network connections when using cloud storage
Many small fixes to the dive planner
Many other fixes for various errors reported since 4.5
 
Other
Many updates and improvements to the user manual
Updated Windows and Mac binaries to Qt 5.7.1 (and newer versions of several other support libraries).
Subsurface 4.6 with the heat map shown
Dive computer support
Improved OSTC 4 support
Improvements to OSTC firmware update handling
Small fix to Uemis downloader for yet another corner case (Uemis downloader is known to be broken for some users — it is no longer actively maintained)
Added support for additional divecomputers (through the great work of the libdivecomputer project)

Announcing Subsurface 4.6 Beta 2

The Subsurface developer team is proud to announce our second beta version of Subsurface 4.6.

  • Fixed problems opening pictures from picture tab
  • Improvements to OSTC firmware update handling
  • Small improvements to dive planner (show repetitive dives)
  • Fix surface pressure in dive planner
  • Updated Windows and Mac binaries to Qt 5.7.1 (and newer versions of several other support libraries).

Binaries are available for Windows, Mac, and an AppImage for Linux (plus distribution specific binaries for a number of Linux flavors including Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint, Fedora, and openSUSE). You can get Subsurface 4.6 Beta 2 from these locations:

Windows: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/subsurface-4.6-Beta-2.exe

Mac: https://subsurface-divelog.org/downloads/Subsurface-4.6-Beta-2.dmg

Linux: A generic AppImage is available for download as Subsurface-4.6-Beta-2-x86_64.AppImage. Download this file, make it executable
chmod +x Subsurface-4.6-Beta-2-x86_64.AppImage and then simply run this file.
Linux: Ubuntu: Add ppa:subsurface/subsurface-beta to your software sources; the .deb files in that PPA can also be installed on sufficiently current versions Debian and LinuxMint; see the Downloads page and use http://ppa.launchpad.net/subsurface/subsurface-beta/ubuntu to get our latest beta version.

Linux: openSUSE / Fedora: go to our open build service beta page

This is a beta release, so the usual warnings apply. We don’t think it will eat your data file (and it will make a backup of your old files, just in case), but paying extra attention might not hurt. As always, we are very curious to get feedback (after all, that’s the purpose of a beta release). Please post in the User Forum or file a bug in our Bug Tracker. And as a side note, after too many problems with our old bugtracker, we just switched to using issues on GitHub, so please follow the link above, not the old link to trac you may have bookmarked previously.
