Contributing to Scilab development can be done by writing external modules that extend Scilab capabilities in specific fields. These modules provide new features and documentation to Scilab users.
Since Scilab 5.2, a new website called "ATOMS Portal" has been released to replace former "Scilab Toolboxes Center" and host all external modules developed by external developers.
These modules can be made available to Scilab users directly from Scilab console via a new feature named ATOMS (AuTomatic mOdules Management for Scilab), if the module author wishes it.
In parallel, external modules sources can now be managed through the new Scilab Forge.
