The new release is focused on better usability and visual appearance of the RSD. It specifically includes a new layout for the software, project and organisation pages.


The new release also includes enhanced filtering options for software entries, e.g. by assigned keywords or programming language. Further options are currently being developed, in particular dedicated filtering by Helmholtz Research Fields and PoF topics.

Upcoming updates will include more enhancements such as better handling of logos and images of software entries, a feature that automatically collects citation information of a software entry based on DOIs, and personal RSE pages.
