Just in time for the New Year, we’re happy to announce the release of yt version 2.3! ( ) The new version includes many new modules and enhancements, and the usual set of bug fixes over the last point release. We encourage all users to upgrade to take advantage of the changes.

yt is a community-developed analysis and visualization toolkit for astrophysical simulation data. yt provides full support for Enzo, Orion, Nyx, and FLASH codes, with preliminary support for the RAMSES code (and a handful of others.) It can be used to create many common types of data products, as well as serving as a library for developing your own data reductions and processes.

Below is a non-comprehensive list of new features and enhancements:

Everything, from installation, to development, to a cookbook, can be found on the homepage:

We have updated the libraries installed with the install script; for more information, see the “Dependencies” section of the yt docs at

Development has been sponsored by the NSF, DOE, and various University funding. We invite you to get involved with developing and using yt!

We’re also holding the FIRST YT WORKSHOP from January 24-26 at the FLASH center in Chicago. See the workshop homepage for more information!

Please forward this announcement to interested parties.
