Release Announcement

We are pleased to announce the twenty-third release (code name “Katherine Johnson”) of the Einstein Toolkit, an open-source, community developed software infrastructure for relativistic astrophysics. The highlights of this release include:

* The inclusion of a new code in the Toolkit release, Kuibit
* The inclusion of a new code in the Toolkit release, RePrimAn

In addition, bug fixes accumulated since the previous release in May 2021 have been included.

The Einstein Toolkit is a collection of software components and tools for simulating and analyzing general relativistic astrophysical systems that builds on numerous software efforts in the numerical relativity community including code to compute initial data parameters, the spacetime evolution codes Baikal, lean_public, and McLachlan, analysis codes to compute horizon characteristics and gravitational waves, the Carpet AMR infrastructure, and the relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics codes GRHydro and IllinoisGRMHD. The Einstein Toolkit also contains a 1D self-force code. For parts of the toolkit, the Cactus Framework is used as the underlying computational infrastructure providing large-scale parallelization, general computational components, and a model for collaborative, portable code development.

The Einstein Toolkit is primarily supported by NSF 2004157/2004044/2004311/2004879/2003893 (Enabling fundamental research in the era of multi-messenger astrophysics).
