QGC v3.1 also adds thorough support for ArduSub including firmware-specific plugin features, joystick button setup, Sub-specific safety setup, and frame selection.

The ArduSub usage of QGC is an interesting capability that we don't talk much about. QGroundControl has a plug-in architecture which allows third parties to customize the UI and internals of QGC to support custom vehicles. ArduSub is an example of that. So if you have your own custom vehicle that you'd like to have a custom ground station for. You can build that with QGroundControl.

FYI: The plugin architecture is what QGC uses internally to support both ArduPilot and PX4 firmwares with all the various vehicle setup differences between the two.
