There is now a new colored (yellow)
box on the wiki homepage,
displaying a few recent software updates:
More precisely, "a few" is equal to five, and the five entries
displayed there are extracted from the longer list available at: https://www.gdr-mascotnum.fr/software_updates.html.
You can contribute to this ongoing effort in several ways:
1) Indicate software updates (including new software) to be announced, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) Help us write "bots" (scripts) to watch for updates of a given type (R packages on CRAN, Python packages on PyPI, github releases, etc.).
3) Suggest useful ways to improve this service.
