My latest favorite MESA read is the forthcoming MESA IV instrument paper. There is a lot of new capabilities on convective boundaries, chemical diffusion, implicit hydrodynamics with a Riemann solver, modeling of the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, a tight coupling with a well-known radiative transfer instrument, supernova light curves, pulsational-type suupernova, and black hole formation. Should be fun for the referee :o
