How To Install Subsurface 4.4.1 On Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Debian 8, Fedora 20, OpenSUSE 13.2, OpenSUSE 13.1, Arch Linux And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Subsurface is a diving log application, written by Linus Torvalds himself. The latest version available is Subsurface 4.4.1, which has been recently released, coming with a lot of changes.

  • Spanish, Russian and French translations of the user manual have been updated.
  • Better and more flexible parsing of GPS coordinates.
  • Small fixes to the HTML export.
  • Fixed a problem where dives imported from some Shearwater dive computers would be considered CCR dives. For dives imported in the past, manually setting them to OC works around the issue.
  • Several fixes to imports from other divelog, including importing from MacDive.
  • New build script that should make it easier to build Subsurface from source on Linux distribution we don’t provide packages for.

For information about this release, see the official announcement.
