Summary description: BibLaTeX stylefiles for software products

Announcement text:

Software plays a significant role in modern research, and it must be 
properly acknowledged and referenced in scholarly works. To this end, 
specific bibliographic entries for describing software, software versions, 
software modules and code fragments have been designed by a dedicated task 
force at Inria in 2020 that brought together researchers from Computer 
Science and Applied Mathematics.

This package implements these four software entry types for BibLaTeX in 
the form of a bibliography style extension. This means that one can 
add support for these four software entry types to any other BibLaTeX 
style used in documents typeset in LaTeX. It requires the Biber backend.

Full documentation and examples are included in the package, as well as 
links to the repository where development takes place.
