This is just a heads up that we're going to be merging the
"experimental" bookmark into "development" sometime in the next few
days. This means if you're using yt-3.0 and you update, your field
names and whatnot will change -- but the development docs on the
website cover most of this, and I think most everyone using 3.0 has
been on this already.
If you run into any troubles, please do write to the mailing list with
Thanks Hilary! That helps a lot.

I'm looking to work with star particle velocities, ideally: some
sort of mass-weighted-average of star particle velocities within a given
cell (I'm using enzo, if that's relevant). This doesn't seem to exist in th
universal field list, although the
/y/z in the enzo field list seem relevant.

I have an unusual problem that I cannot seem to work out. I'm trying to
generate a set of contours on an OffAxisProjectionPlot using the underlying
data from another OffAxisProjectionPlot (i.e. a different data_source). I
can get this working A-OK when I just use the ProjectionPlot class, but
when I attempt to use the OffAxisProjectionPlot, I encounter problems.
I made a small script demonstrating this problem, as well as the success
when this method is applied to a ProjectionPlot object. Any suggestions?
Note, this is yt 2.x dev. Here is the script:
University of Arizona
is it possible to create a data container in which only those cells are included in which one of the fields (e.g. the tracer field) has
a value above a certain threshold?
Thanks a lot in advance.

Subject: [IPython-dev] [ANNOUNCE] IPython 2.0.0
To: IPython Development list <ipython-dev(a)scipy.org>
Cc: ipython user list <IPython-User(a)scipy.org>
While April 1 may be a very loose definition of winter, IPython 2.0 is
I promise this is not an April Fool's joke, but if you don't believe me just
pip install --upgrade ipython
to find out.
See [what's new](http://ipython.org/ipython-doc/2/whatsnew/version2.0.html)
for more details, but the highlights are:
- interactive widgets for the notebook
- directory navigation in the notebook dashboard
- persistent URLs for notebooks
- a new modal user interface in the notebook
- a security model for notebooks
You can check out the [example notebooks](
on nbviewer, or download them and try things out yourself.
This is the first IPython release with wheels (one for py2, one for py3,
for now), so please give those a test if you can. These will be installed
by default for anyone using current pip (1.5).
We plan to have 2.0.1 within a month based on initial feedback, so bring on
the bug reports!
Thanks for all your support, we have a great time working on this.
