Diving Log 5.0.2 released

Right before the end of the year you can download Diving Log 5.0.2, which brings one of the most requested features: more direct downloaders. I finally had some time to include a lot of additional dive computer downloaders across all brands, thanks to the great libdivecomputer project. Jef Driesen did a great job during the past years in analyzing several dive computer protocols and creating an open source, cross-platform library, which can be included in applications like Diving Log.

Without this project it would never be possible for me to include such a wide range of downloaders for Diving Log, because it takes really a lot of time understanding these protocols and data. So, if you like the new universal downloader, please visit the project website, scroll to the bottom and donate some money. This will help to keep this important project going on in future.

Universal Downloader

To access it, open in the sidebar the “Download” tab and click on “Downloader”. You can also put it into the “Home” tab for quick access. It supports currently the following manufacturers:

  • Aeris
  • Cressi
  • Genesis
  • HeinrichsWeikamp
  • Mares
  • Oceanic
  • ReefNet
  • Sherwood
  • Subgear
  • Suunto
  • Tusa
  • Uwatec
  • Zeagle

It is possible that you can even download your dive computer, if your manufacturer or device is not listed. Just select a computer which matches your computer closely (e.g. Seiko based computers are very similar). If you successfully downloaded a dive computer not included in the list, please let me know and I’ll add it with the next update. Please note, that these downloaders are still beta, so you might see crashes or wrong data. Please provide feedback if you see any problems.

This update contains beside the many new downloaders, a Scubase import and some bug fixes also the ability to edit the user defined field names in the logbook window:
