We’re proud to announce the release of version 2.5 of the yt Project, The new version includes many new features, refinements of existing features, and numerous bugfixes. We encourage all users to upgrade to take advantage of the changes.

yt is a community-developed analysis and visualization toolkit, primarily directed at astrophysical hydrodynamics simulations. It provides full support for output from the Enzo, FLASH, Orion, and Nyx codes, with preliminary support for several others. It provides access to simulation data using an intuitive python interface, can perform many common visualization tasks, and offers a framework for conducting data reductions and analysis of simulation data.

The most visible changes with the 2.5 release include:
