I like to keep up to date about new Julia packages being registered and new releases of existing ones.
I used to just “watch” the Github repo for the registry, but it contains a lot of incidental information and these days it is like drinking from a firehose. I of course also follow the announcements category here, but not every package is announced.
Is there an alternative mechanism for this? Ideally I would like to be notified about
new packages in the registry
new versions of existing packages, possibly with a filter for major and minor version bumps
