AB - The SixTrack particle tracking code is routinely used to simulate particle trajectories in high energy circular machines like the LHC and FCC, and is deployed for massive simulation campaigns on CERN clusters and on the BOINC platform within the LHC@Home volunteering computing project. The 2017 release brings many upgrades that improve flexibility, performance, and accuracy. This paper describes the new modules for wire- and electron lenses (WIRE and ELEN), the expert interface for beam-beam element (BEAM/EXPERT), the extension of the number of simultaneously tracked particles, the new Frequency Map Analysis (FMA) postprocessing option, the generation of a single zip of selected output files (ZIPF) in order to extend the coverage of the studies in LHC@HOME (e.g. FMA and on-line aperture checks), coupling to external codes (DYNK-PIPE and BDEX), a new CMAKE based build- and test mechanism, and internal restructuring.
