The algorithm by which results are ordered has been changed

We have changed the algorithm by which results are ordered. For a given search term, results are ordered in the priority Title, Keywords, Description and Category.
For resources having the same 'relevance', those with the more open licenses are displayed first.
Packages and equations are always displayed above other resources.
