-Wildbook 7 development ​is underway! A few things ​to look forward ​to in the new version: +Where'​s the Wildbook team? If you take a look at our [[https://​github.com/​WildbookOrg/​Wildbook|master branch on Github.com]] and separately in our Image Analysis repo, you'll see commits flying fast and furious. ​Wildbook 7 is nearing completion, and many of our platforms have already been upgraded ​to stay current with master. However, our recent support from Microsoft has given us time to rip off old band-aids and remove old hacks. We're re-implementing all existing Wildbooks with a common, new computer vision pipeline that can pivot and behave differently for each species. This has been a huge lift and far more work than we expected, but we're very happy to have the time and funding to finally do it. It's absolutely critical to drive complexity and cost down, and sometimes only experience can show how that should be done. Here is a list of what you can expect ​in the upcoming release of Wildbook 7. 
-  * default integration ​of the YouTube datamining intelligent agent we have developed for whaleshark.org. If Wildbook has been trained for your specieswe'll have the intelligent agent aiding your research community ​with data from YouTube +  * Consolidated computer vision pipeline for multiple algorithms and species, especially HotSpotter and CurvRank 
-  * Survey  ​and SurveyTrack data constructs are now being merged to master for broader usage +  * Intelligent Agent data collection from YouTube, combining multiple forms of machine learning to capture more data from the public. On whaleshark.org, ​our Intelligent Agent is significantly outperforming human researchers in raw data collection and curation yet finding data generally otherwise missed by the research community. 
-  * a new user interface for bulk visual data submission with computer vision ​integration +  * Improved Image Analysis performance ​and stability 
-  * a new data import standard and supporting importer ​for new/​updating ​data sets +  * CurvRank algorithm ​integration, support, and stability and speed improvements 
-  * ...and much, much more+  * Improved multi-species support ​for data management and computer vision 
- +  * For spotted species, faster spot pattern matching ​and more stable matching clients 
-**2017-09-03** +  Better in-page editing features 
- +  * Improved User management, providing a better foundation ​for growth in citizen science ​and engagement 
-A new paper using data from [[https://​www.whaleshark.org|Wildbook ​for Whale Sharks]] was published! +  * Multiple ​
