Good to hear they've added ipv6 support.  Here's the old IPTrack FAQ entry 
for IPv6 support.  It seems to have been updated quite recently.

Q: I want feature X implemented and I want it NOW!/I want IPv6 support added

A: My time is limited and as I am the only developer actively working on 
IPplan, only features that are of use to me or are interesting to code up 
will get added quickly. Other requests will probably get added to the TODO 
but will receive no attention. One feature request that comes up from time 
to time is IPv6. Adding IPv6 support will require major effort but has such 
a limited audience. Ironically the only people that ever requested IPv6 
support are either from Telcos, ISP’s or government departments, yet they 
are never interested in contributing resources! I deam them parasites of 
the Open Source world - leaching off the good will and effort of the Open 
Source community, yet give nothing in return.
