What an interesting upgrade, I love it. One anomaly that I  found is 
that when I edit dive information on the notes tab, the behaviour 
differs  quite a lot: 1) No yellow background to indicate editing; 2) no 
Accept/reject box to confirm changes. I suspect this was intended. What 
is the philosophy for editing existing dive information? For the 
Equipment tab, the Confirm/reject dialog works as previously.

Kind regards,
