ADS gets a new interface

The Astrophysics Data System or ADS, a tool for finding astronomical and planetary science, has introduced a beta version of its new interface, Bumblebee. Bumblebee builds on the ADS "Classic" and ADS "2.0" interfaces, and introduces new filtering options and the ability to search full-text.

For the time being, the myADS notification service will remain unchanged, but look forward to a new custom notification service in the coming year.

For help constructing complex searches, visit:

And for the hackers among you, visit github to check out Bumblebee's publicly accessible code.
