The Subsurface development team proudly announces the release 5.0.8 of Subsurface, an open source dive log and dive planning program for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

This version is a quick follow up to 5.0.7 and fixes an annoying bug that snuck into the builds of that release.

Changes in Subsurface 5.0.8:

new feature:

  • core: add support for separator characters when using degree-style coordinates

  • profile: plot sensor data from other dive computer if available

  • translations: fall back to related translations (before falling back to US English)

bug fixes:

  • build-system: fix packaging errors that prevented maps from being shown on Windows and macOS

Where do I find binaries?
