Arquivo.pt launched a new version, called Basileus, on November 11, 2020.

The purpose of this version was to improve the user experience when browsing through the different interfaces of Arquivo.pt.

Adjustments were made at the level of Web design which resulted in greater consistency in the structure of the code, in the graphic aspects and in the interactions, such as colors, fonts and buttons.
