I've been developing on yt-3.0 on my own fork, so I'm eager to have this discussion whenever it's convenient. What's the rough timeline for the enzo point release?

I say hold off on yt 2.5 release discussions until a week after enzo point release is done, but yes, potentially a release seems possible before the holiday break.

Hi all,

A lot of really great work has already or is just about to be been merged into yt since we did our last release in August.  Just a few examples:

Unit Tests and improved answer tests with continuous integration
Numerous PlotWindow fixes and improvements
Improved Athena support
spherical and cylindrical coordinates and vector coordinate transformations
Particle support for FLASH data
Limited support for generating GDF initial conditions
Improved support for 2D FLASH data.
PlotWindow TimeSeries interface
Numerous bug fixes

The obvious holdup to a release is the number of open issues marked for 2.5.  I think the idea was to make the 2.5 release the last in the 2.X series before moving all development over to yt 3.0.  Is that still the plan?  Is it possible to get a 2.5 release out while delaying the end of 2.X development to a 2.6 release?

The reason I bring all this up is mostly for the plot window fixes - we've improved it a lot since August and I think it's much more usable now.  Perhaps a new release and a blog post about the new plotting interface will encourage more people to switch over.

I'm curious what everyone thinks about this.  I know many of you are busy with the enzo 2.2 release and probably don't want to make another big push so soon.
