Hi Tracker users,

A new version of Tracker has been released. To upgrade, click the green "Now available" button on the toolbar and choose Upgrade Now. If you don't see the green button choose Help|Check For Upgrades.

You can also download installers directly from the Tracker home page (http://physlets.org/tracker/) or ComPADRE (http://www.opensourcephysics.org/items/detail.cfm?ID=7365).

New features in this version:

--new highlight/shadow video filter enhances highlights or shadows
--expanded shape choices for RGB regions: ellipses, rectangles, freeform polygons
--new datatable time view displays line profile data that varies with time
--parameter uncertainties are now determined for all fit functions

Thanks! Doug

Thank you for all your hard work and keeping this valuable tool running.  I am having an issue with autotrack.  It seems broken.  I'm running windows10 and I tried one of the default video files (bouncing cart) to make sure there weren't any video compatibility issues.  Anyhow, ctrl-shift-click brings up the auto-track window, but "search" doesn't automatically advance.  Any help / feedback would be appreciated.  BTW, I have run this program in the past without this issue.

Autotracker is indeed broken in version 6.0.5 and a new version 6.0.6 will be released this week with the fix.
