PoP 8 new features (1): New interface

Start of a weekly announcement of new features of Publish or Perish version 8

On the 1st of November 2021, nearly exactly 15 years after first launching Publish or Perish, we released version 8 of the software. After two months of "soft launch", we are now ready to publicise its new features. To do so, I will post about a new feature every Thursday. If you want a complete overview have a look at this blogpost: Publish or Perish version 8.

The new release consolidates the many new features that we have been adding over the past two years, but the biggest visible difference is the new layout: see the screen shot above. With the new layout we have tried to achieve the following:

  • A cleaner appearance with a more logical left-to-right flow of information details;
  • More details visible for the currently selected paper;
  • More space for future developments.

We felt that with the general increase of screen sizes over the past years (the previous layout was introduced with Publish or Perish version 5 in 2016), we could use a bit more horizontal screen space than before without compromising the total amount of information available at a glance.
