Sorry for the late response. I've had some problems with internet access 
lately, and the past few weeks I've also been fully occupied with some 
other things in life. So I'm running a bit behind at the moment and I'll 
have a lot to catch up with. But I probably won't have much time for 
doing libdivecomputer related work until next month.

But the answer your question, I had not started working on the Teric 
support yet.
