Mainly to deal with the issues with Mac (where I had to embarrassingly push a new installer a couple days after release which is something that I hate doing in the first place). Anyway, the problems in the Mac binary are resolved now, and we even have a few new features as indicated by the CHANGELOG...

I gotta use Subsurface-6addfe166-x86_64.AppImage to get the data out. IIRC at some point I bisected it to have broken down between 54f6bff9290906a62628c85e1adb3a74ca487722 and 8ae735a4d70307ebe2a42d315697f02ce71dbe88. But digging into this area is quite challenging since the interfaces change  and one has to switch versions of both Subsurface and libdivecomputer while bisecting.

I don't have an OSTC with BT for testing. But I thought that both Jan and Robert had reported success downloading from their OSTC just recently.
Bisecting across that merge is insanely painful - I agree. I wish I had a better idea of how to approach this :-(
Without hardware to test things with, I really don't know what else I could do.
