You can search for rings by their properties. If you are only interested in commutative rings, try the specialized search with expanded, commutative-only properties.

New ring: asymmetry of PF
This is a ring which is one-sided pseudo-Frobenius. The construction is involved, and not complete yet. Also, if you had any trouble visiting the theorems section recently, please try again. I fixed a bug there.
new ring: Asymmetry of principally injective
This is an example of a ring which is one-sided principally injective.
New rings: V domains
Added this ring and this ring, examples of simple right V domains, which I hear are pretty rare.
Site news: Ring maps
I posted a few graphs of implications between ring properties. This is the first time I've regenerated the graphs in a long time, so there are probably problems. Please let me know if you find any. Thanks!
site news: 100th ring winner (and more!)
Congratulations MatheinBoulomenos for the winning submission! The next several rings are submissions from the contest too, so check them out. Also thanks to kc_kennylau for working so hard filling in a lot of gaps, especially around ring cardinalities.

site news: "Corrections to Examples of Commutative rings"
Put up the first draft of a TeX document of errata for Examples of Commutative rings. Find the link on the errata page.
site update: Dimensions page
Owing to the difficulties of sensibly ordering and searching dimensions, I've settled on this presentation of dimensions. As always, if some data is missing, please submit it for entry!
Site update: Three new features!
On ring detail pages you will now find Dimensions and Subsets tabs. Take a look at $\mathbb Z$ to see how they work. Also, there is now a ring theory literature errata page so we can track mistakes as we find them. You can get to it through the Citations menu item.
new property: PCI rings
I added PCI rings to the collection. Interestingly, this is the only property I'm aware of in the database for which it is currently unknown whether or not the definition is symmetric or asymmetric.
