We are currently finishing the implementation of a scientific software library. It's the first project of this type for me and I'm curious, how to make the software citable in a similar way to Molpro or R?
I was thinking about writing a short paper introducing the library, which could be subsequently cited. But I'm not sure, how to deal with the different versions? I don't think it's possible to write just some "changelog" paper once a year to summarize new released version.
