We pulled in support for non-Cartesian coordinate plotting, including spherical and cylindrical, and I also just put in a pull request for geographic coordinates -- first applied to plotting some neat tomographic models of magma plumes.
and were at a workshop this week where they re-engineered the FITS frontend to manage very large datasets, and even added support for splitting along an axis to represent different fields!
added non-CGS unit registries, loaded up our unit registry with all the planets, and Ben Keller and keep adding awesome N-body stuff. is doing really incredible stuff with halo finding, too.
Wow! I'm so honored to get to work with all these people on such exciting (and fun!) stuff.
Up until now, it has only been possible to run yt on Unix-like platforms such as Linux and OS X. A number of months ago, I took on a challenge to install yt on Windows (not because I need it in any way, but I thought it would be fun to see if I could get it to work). Using Anaconda Python distribution, this is now possible.
If you have a Windows machine with the Anaconda Python distribution (with Python 2.7) and you want to try yt-3.0 alpha out on it, you can go to my Binstar page for yt-3.0, or install the binary from the command line using conda:
conda install -c https://conda.binstar.org/jzuhone yt
Caution: as this version is still in an alpha state, there may be bugs and other weird behavior. Please report any issues at http://bitbucket.org/yt_analysis/yt/issues, and for documentation for this version visit http://yt-project.org/docs/dev-3.0/.
The yt project aims to produce an integrated science environment for collaboratively asking and answering astrophysical questions. To do so, it will encompass the creation of initial conditions, the execution of simulations, and the detailed exploration and visualization of the resultant data. It will also provide a standard framework based on physical quantities interoperability between codes.
Development of yt is driven by a commitment to Open Science principles as manifested in participatory development, reproducibility, documented and approachable code, a friendly and helpful community of users and developers, and Free and Libre Open Source Software.
