+2012 In Review
+==============
+
+2012 was an amazing year for yt.  Whether measured by improvements to the code
+or community activity, it has been the busiest and most productive yet.
+
+Here are a few stats:
+
+ * We held the first ever yt workshop at the FLASH center in Chicago in
+   January.  Plans for a development-focused workshop have already begun in
+   earnest for March of 2013.
+ * 2221 changesets were added to the code base -- out of a total 7369, or
+   slightly over 30%!
+ * A record number of new contributors
+
+   * In 2011, Nathan Goldbaum had contributed one changeset.  In 2012, he was
+     the number two contributor, with 322, ranging from the PlotWindow to field
+     names and fixes for detailed aspects of the FLASH frontend.
+   * Brian Crosby
+   * Andrew Cunningham
+   * Markus Haider
+   * Christian Karch
+   * Yuan Li
+   * Joshua Moloney
+   * Thomas Robitaille
+   * Anna Rosen
+   * Anthony Scopatz
+   * Elizabeth Tasker
+   * Stephanie Tonnesen
+
+ * Version 2.4 of yt was released, which included threaded volume rendering,
+   the Plot Window, a totally rewritten GUI, and a bunch of other improvements.
+ * The `yt Hub <https://hub.yt-project.org/>`_ was re-launched with data
+   exploration widgets and an IPython Notebook viewer.
+ * The documentation for yt was streamlined and improved, with some awesome
+   cookbook recipes and improvements.
+ * Development of yt 3.0 really took off, with people from several communities
+   picking it up and contributing changes.
+ * yt gained the ability to create data totally in memory, and then write it to
+   disk!
+ * The yt community grew and was more active than ever, providing assistance,
+   ideas, sharing suggestions and scripts, and keeping a congenial, friendly
+   attitude.
+
+Thanks for everything, and here's to making 2013 even better!
