Linus Torvalds’ Subsurface 4.0.1 released

Subsurface is a diving log software written by none other than Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel. Linus is also the creator of version control system Git which is the most popular version control system of the world.

Dirk Hohndel, a renowned Open Source developer and ‘sub-surfacer, who is often spotted next to Linus in the deep waters, has announced the version 4.0.1 of Subsurface.

Dirk writes on the Subsurface blog, “The Subsurface team is proud to announce a small bugfix and enhancement update to Subsurface.” You can see the changes here.

In this video with Muktware Linus Torvalds talks about Scuba Diving as his only hobby outside of computers.

If you don’t like to dive in deep waters like Linus and Dirk do, you can always dive into the Subsurface code and help it make better.
