It’s been a couple months since the last one of these, so I thought:
In terms of non-bug fixes, the following features have been added:
Stack Overflow news items
Trending packages* // daily, weekly, monthly
Improved search capabilities
If any toys you want are missing from the site, feel free to suggest them now
Thanks all! Keep up the good fight

For reference, these are the current suggestions:
This site is a great resource, thanks.
A couple of suggestions:
The categories don’t seem quite as useful as they could be. For one, they are not ordered alphabetically. We might benefit from more description or fewer categories. For example, MXNet could go in “GPU”, “Computing”, “Stats” or even “Opt” or “Math”. (I’m assuming the categories are not necessarily disjoint sets?) Also, “Astro” and “Astrodynamics” are both categories. I realize these names are generated algorithmically somehow, so I’m not sure what the solution would be.
It would be nice if search results were sort-able in the same manner as other lists.
Thanks for the suggestions!
sorting on search results sounds good to me
how to implement categorization has been an issue from the beginning
If you have any ideas on how categorization should be done, I would be very happy to listen to them.
That would be a nice thing to have working.
There’s a long standing open Julia issue about adding tags to packages. I think this is included in Pkg3? I guess we’ll find out next week (JuliaCon).
Search results are now sortable in the same manner as other lists
// whoopsie. broke the website for a second there…
Just fixed categories to be more in line with what you mentioned (i.e. julia observer uses Julia.jl’s data for category building)
// repeat of
Based on what you said, I made the category sidebar on julia observer use category info from svaksha’s Julia.jl // desktop only
Can you give some suggestions on formatting? I think it’s definitely a step in the right direction, though
reminder: suggestions are always welcome
Looking nice! This’ll be a useful resource.
