I'm willing to take on the entropy field along the lines of what Greg suggested, but I still wonder if we should try to incorporate spatially varying gammas. I assume this is something that is not possible in Enzo, I guess, but I don't know about other codes.
I assume this could be handled by checking whether or not "gamma" is defined as a runtime parameter, or checking the field list for the gamma fields.

I hope you're all enjoying your weekend and don't mind taking some time out of it to think about yt.
Right now there are only three open tickets for the 2.4 release:
- The entropy field in non-enzo data
- Transfer function bounds
- Volume rendering docs
I think these tickets are things that are fixable on a short timescale. Sam, please let us know if you need more time or help with the volume rendering docs.
We've put a lot of time into updating the cookbook and making sure the scripts produce good-looking images based on a variety of datasets. The latest version of the docs is available here: http://yt-project.org/docs/2.4/
I'm curious how everyone feels about setting a time aside sometime this week to do the official release. I think the release will attract more eyeballs if we can point to screencasts about some of the new functionality, including (but not limited to, see the changelog http://yt-project.org/docs/2.4/changelog.html#version-2-4 for the full [really extensive and impressive] list of changes):
- Threaded volume renderer
- Plot window
- Improved time series analysis
- Improved extjs4 reason
- The new yt hub
I'm planning on doing a plot window screencast this afternoon. Does anyone else want to claim one of the features?
Lastly, I contacted Kelle Cruz at astrobetter about going a guest post about the yt 2.4 release. She is interested - all she needs from us is a google doc with a draft of the post, including text embedded videos, and urls. I'm going to begin the write up sometime this week and then share the google doc on the yt-dev list so that others can contribute.
The end is in sight! This will be by far the best release of yt yet :)
