Eighty years ago, Ramanujan conjectured and proved some striking congruences for the partition function modulo powers of 5, 7, and 11. Until recently, only a handful of further such congruences were known. Here we report that such congruences are much more widespread than was previously known, and we describe the theoretical framework that appears to explain every known Ramanujan-type congruence.

TLDR
This note announces the proof of a conjecture of Ono, which essentially asserts that the elusive crank satisfies exactly the same types of general congruences as the partition function.
A Periodic Approach to Plane Partition Congruences
TLDR
This theorem provides a novel proof of several classical congruences and establishes two new congruENCs which do not fit the scope of the theorem, using only elementary techniques, or a relationship to existing multipartition congruence.
Congruences satisfied by eta-quotients
The values of the partition function, and more generally the Fourier coefficients of many modular forms, are known to satisfy certain congruences. Results given by Ahlgren and Ono for the partition
Linear incongruences for generalized eta-quotients
For a given generalized eta-quotient, we show that linear progressions whose residues fulfill certain quadratic equations do not give rise to a linear congruence modulo any prime. This recovers known
Linear Incongruences for Generalized Eta-Quotients
For a given generalized eta-quotient, we show that linear progressions whose residues fulfill certain quadratic equations do not give rise to a linear congruence modulo any prime. This recovers known
Extension of a proof of the Ramanujan congruences for multipartitions
Recently Lachterman, Schayer, and Younger published an elegant proof of the Ramanujan congruences for the partition function p(n). Their proof uses only the classical theory of modular forms as well

RAMANUJAN'S CUBIC CONTINUED FRACTION AND RAMANUJAN TYPE CONGRUENCES FOR A CERTAIN PARTITION FUNCTION
In this paper, we study the divisibility of the function a(n) defined by $\sum_{n\geq 0} a(n) q^n := (q;q)^{-1}_\infty (q^2; q^2)^{-1}_\infty $. In particular, we prove certain "Ramanujan type cong...
Asymptotics of crank generating functions and Ramanujan congruences
In this paper we obtain asymptotic formulas for the Fourier coefficients of an infinite family of crank-generating functions. Moreover, we use this result to show that the crank obeys certain
THE PARTITION FUNCTION AND HECKE OPERATORS
The theory of congruences for the partition function p(n) depends heavily on the properties of half-integral weight Hecke operators. The subject has been complicated by the absence of closed formulas

Distribution of the partition function modulo $m$
Ramanujan (and others) proved that the partition function satisfies a number of striking congruences modulo powers of 5, 7 and 11. A number of further congruences were shown by the works of Atkin,

We write and so that p(n) is the number of unrestricted partitions of n. Ramanujan [1] conjectured in 1919 that if q = 5, 7, or 11, and 24m ≡ 1 (mod qn), then p(m) ≡ 0 (mod qn). He proved his
