Hello Tracker users,

Tracker 4.84 installers for Windows, Mac and Linux are now available from both the Tracker home page (http://www.cabrillo.edu/~dbrown/tracker/) and ComPADRE (http://www.opensourcephysics.org/items/detail.cfm?ID=7365).

This upgrade enables users to add editable text columns to data tables, independently stretches and assigns colors to velocity and acceleration vectors, fixes a recently introduced bug that prevented Tracker from launching on some school networks, and more.

I know a lot of you have developed and classroom-tested some really fun and instructive Tracker experiments. Please consider adding them to the comPADRE OSP collection--we all win when we share :-)  I'll be adding a page to the Tracker web site soon that will help you prepare your videos and supporting documents for comPADRE, and will post a message on this discussion forum when the new page is ready.

Thanks to all of you for your continued innovation and feedback!  Doug
