Linus Torvalds’ Subsurface 4.6 Open-Source Divelog App Gets First Beta Release

Linus Torvalds himself had the pleasure of announcing the release of Subsurface 4.6 Beta 1 this week on his Google+ account, and it looks like the upcoming major release promises great new features and improvements to the multiplatform application designed for tracking single or multi-tank dives using air, TriMix, and Nitrox. Notable changes include improved handling of slow network connections when attempting to store data in the cloud, along with the implementation of the “–cloud-timeout=” command-line argument for adding extra time to the cloud storage connectivity. There’s also support for importing DAN DL7 files from other apps.
