Subsurface 4.2 Beta1 (4.1.90) July 16, 2014

Posted by tumaix in planetkde-tomazcanabrava.


It’s been a little over two months since our last release — so there’s a chance that we will meet our plans of a release “about every three months”.

This is the first beta, so be careful — have backups of your data files and watch out for changes you didn’t intend. There are a few bugs hiding still, check (and report) at our bugtracker.


Some of the interesting new features in 4.2:

the dive planner got added back again, using the graphical profile editor
pictures can be associated with dives and shown in the profile
printing was quite a bit improved
data entry for dives is much more intuitive and consistent
first steps towards an HTML exporter
support for importing dive log files from Seabear dive computers
a user survey was added to learn more about the needs of out users

Please let us know what you think!

This is FABULOUS work. I use this all the time for my Suunto working as a DM.
Lots of divers are interested but there are still too few ‘technically enlightened’ ones who use Linux.

One question keeps coming up – Will you do an Android version?Everyone has a smartphone on the dive boats and would use an App if available.

Keep up this GREAT work.

Yes, there will be an android version, we are investigating the possibilities to do an android and ios one using the qt framework. We currently have the subsurface companion, that works on android and helps with geotagging. 🙂
