astroPluto is modular Godunov-type code intended mainly for astrophysical applications and high Mach number flows in multiple spatial dimensions. The code embeds different hydrodynamic modules and multiple algorithms to solve the equations describing Newtonian, relativistic, MHD, or relativistic MHD fluids in Cartesian or curvilinear coordinates.

Release Notes: A new FARGO-MHD module is available for Cartesian/polar and spherical geometries, and it is completely parallel in all 3 directions. Isothermal EoS with extensions for varying speed of sound has been added to the HD module. Body forces have been re-implemented using simpler functions that prescribe either the vector components or the gravitational potential. Assorted bugfixes and other minor enhancements.
Release Notes: Time step computation now supports unsplit Runge-Kutta schemes and the inclusion of parabolic terms (both explicit and Super Time Stepping). Dissipative processes can now be incorporated, at the explicit level, with Chombo-AMR. The FARGO scheme has been extended to support spherical geometry. Bugfixes.
