What does tf2 add that tf doesn't have and why would I choose one over the other? It isn't clear to me what the difference is ... thanks.

tf2 is a new implementation of tf with better abstraction and dependency isolation. See the wiki page for an overview: tf2 The design of the new version is documented on the tf2/Design page.

tf2 is still experimental and in the geometry_experimental stack and it is still recommended to use the tf package until tf2 is released in the geometry stack.

This and says tf is deprecated in hydro, "It is recommended for new work to use tf2 directly as it has a cleaner interface."
