Paralog is the world's leading skydiving logbook and flight analysis software made by skydivers for skydivers - and BASE jumpers!
This is the latest version of Paralog, version 8.1, which includes the CD-ROM and license key. The packaging still shows version 7, but the license key on the ChutingStar versions automatically upgrades you to 8.1.
Paralog downloads jump details from all electronic freefall loggers on the market: Neptune2, N3 and N3A by Alti-2, ProTrack and AltiTrack by Larsen & Brusgaard, FlySight Audible GPS by Bionic Avionics and Skytronic FX/GFX by Parasport Italia. Paralog also supports direct downloads from practically all consumer GPS units, adding a new dimension to post-flight analysis with concise charts and interactive 3D views.
Although being created with freefall loggers in mind, Paralog can be used as a standalone skydiver's logbook without a freefall logger. One or more freefall loggers can be added later at any time.
One year after the last release of Paralog®, a new major version has been released, 8.1. The focus of this release is support for the latest Operating Systems (Windows 8.x (32 and 64bit - Desktop), OSX Maverick (64bit), Linux 14.04 (including 64bit)), for the enhancements of the latest Java Runtime Environment (Java 8), a new video engine with instruments overlay and support of the latest release of the Skydiving Logbook App available for Android and iOS. Paralog supports a variety of platforms: Windows, OSX and Linux are currently supported with supplemental applications available for PocketPC and Palm OS.
Another major addition to Paralog® 8 is the integration of Alti-2's 'Neptune Maintenance Utility' (NMU), available from Alti-2. This will combine setup, configuration and update capabilities for the whole line of Neptune products (including Neptune 2, N3 and N3Audio) with the existing downloaded and display of Neptune jump logs already available for Windows, OSX and Linux.
