yt 4.0.1 is now out!
We've included ~2.5 backports in this release so that users having issues
with our original 4.0 release can be supported. See PRs #3413
<http://Updating EWAH from upstream lemire/EWAHBoolArray #3413> and c821824
EWAH support to fix windows builds and #3445
<https://github.com/yt-project/yt/pull/3445> for WarpX support.
Binaries for yt 4.0.1 are available via pip and conda. If you installed via
the install script or use conda to manage your python installation, you can
update yt via:
$ conda update -c conda-forge yt
And via pip if you manage your python installation with pip:
$ pip install -U yt
As always, if you have any questions, concerns, or run into any trouble
updating please don’t hesitate to send a message to the mailing list or
stop by our Slack workspace.
Thanks for being in the community!

** please note that the conda builds may be available slightly after this
message. If you have trouble updating via conda, please wait a few hours
and try again.
Hi yt-dev !
I wrote a small YTEP to propose that yt’s native colormaps be isolated into a lightweight independent package.
See the motivation therein https://github.com/yt-project/ytep/pull/20
Although the priority for doing this is pretty low, I do think some form of change is required in this area, following the upstream change of behaviour introduced in matplotlib 3.4
Considering the task itself is also reasonably small and straightforward, I assume it is reasonable to submit it now so it may be considered for yt 4.0 (plus, I couldn’t resist submitting a 40th YTEP on Matt’s 40th birthday).
A minimal goal here would be to improve our documentation to showcase the 7 (6 ?) original cmaps from the yt community.
- (spectral) -> this one seems to be currently broken actually, or was it just renamed ? See https://github.com/yt-project/yt/issues/3165#issuecomment-822241839
If we agree to bake a separate package out of them, I would also like to give credit to their respective creators. I know that Nathan came up with “arbre”, but I don’t know who created the other 6 (5). Please share your knowledge, I’m interested in knowing this whatever the fate of this YTEP :)
Dear yt users and developers,
The yt community is proud to announce the release of yt-4.0!
yt (http://yt-project.org) is an open source, community-developed toolkit
for analysis and visualization of volumetric data.
This release features a complete reworking of a number of internal
components, most importantly those related to particles and discrete
points. In keeping with this, we expect that some scripts used for
analysis will require modifications; information about "what's new" as well
as instructions for how to update analysis scripts can be found at:

This release has been years in the making, and features contributions from
dozens of individuals, many of whom were new to the project. It marks the
culmination of a set of wide-reaching infrastructure changes that result in
much higher fidelity to the underlying data for particle datasets.
At the end of this email you can find a non-exhaustive list of individuals
who have contributed to this release; many of them made their first
contribution during this release!
Binaries for yt 4.0 are available via pip and conda. If you use conda to
manage your Python installation, you can update yt via:
$ conda update -c conda-forge yt
If you manage your Python installation with pip, you can update yt via:
$ python -m pip install -U yt
