Scaffold Hunter update

Scaffold Hunter is a chemical data organization and analysis tool and that has been continuously enhanced since the start of its development in 2007. The platform-independent open-source tool was first released in 2009 and provided an interactive visualisation of the so-called scaffold tree, which is a hierarchical classification scheme for molecules based on their common scaffolds. A recent publication describes recent extensions that significantly increase the applicability for a variety of tasks DOI.
When I first opened the application I did not find it particularly intuitive, fortunately there is a online tutorial and sample datasets available.
