EOWG has provided some suggestions for that but particularly at this stage of the project it is important to clarify well that the database is incomplete and inconsistent which may in fact misrepresent some tools (see below). Once developers had a fair chance to update the information about their tools, some of the disclaimer stuff can be removed.

I'm not sure what you mean by "main version". For every tool displayed, all the features *known about it in the database* are displayed (you can sort the database but there is always only one view on the data). So if there is no platform information for a tool, it is because this information is not yet available in the database. I've flagged this issue.
