New JStrack Release Version 3.4.0!
NEW RELEASE: JStrack-3.4.0 (29Sep2019)
This version is now fully tested on Tcl/Tk 8.5.x.
There is a new version of pop3.tcl that needs to replace the old one.
Download it from here: pop3.tcl and copy it
over the existing one in the filt directory.
26Oct19 This is a new, fixed version. Seems
Windows may have a bug in how it handles pipes, so had to get around
that. Whatever ... it works now.
- JStrack-3.4.0 main installation files ...
EVERYONE needs these:
- 29Aug2019: - Major release with new pop3
client for Windows users (and anyone else who wants to use it) to get
their data the right way...automatically and hands-off.
In addition to this, Windows users (who don't have Unix's cron) will
want to download and install the free Z-Cron from
https://www.z-cron.com/. Given that I don't have a Windows computer, and
haven't had one for over a decade, I can only speak for what I read about
this on its web site, but it looks like what you need to have pop3.tcl
running every minute, 24/7 to keep the data updated in as close to
real-time as you're going to get. See the new documentation included in
the JStrack distribution files for more information on using this.
And there's still more; GOES EAST Satellite imagery has changed, so
the overlay on the tracking maps is no longer supported. However, the
standalone imagery has improved substantially at GOES EAST.
- JStrack E-mail List - If you are not on
the JStrack e-mail list, I highly advise you to join it. This
is information about various issues gets posted, either by me or
by other users, along with discussion about it, and ultimately
patches for it, which are both posted to the list and to this
downloads directory. If you want to keep your installation
up-to-date, be on this list. To subscribe or unsubscribe, see
JStrack e-mail list instructions.
- Windows users wanting to use the EXE files:
(if you don't aleady have them):
Windows EXE files for JStrack.
These have been updated for version 3.3.1,
and if you are using the EXE files, you must use these for
3.3.1/3.3.1a/3.3.2 and beyond. Note, however, that their use is now
deprecated, and they may be removed from this server at any time
without further notice.
Other Things You May Need/Want
You will need to have Tcl/Tk installed before you do anything else.
After you extract the archives (and have installed Tcl/Tk), you will need
to run autoconfig.tcl (under the main jstrack directory).
You can find Tcl/Tk 8.4.15 distributions here, but now that JStrack is
tested and fully funtional under JStrack 8.15.x, I strongly recommend
downloading it directly from
ActiveState Tcl for Windows users, and for most Unix users, via packages, ports, etc.
