Dear COMCIFS,

After more than a year of discussion, the DDLm working group has
converged on a specification for a new CIF syntax, dubbed "CIF2".  The
one-page document describing the changes relative to CIF1 is available
on the IUCr website at
http://www.iucr.org/__data/assets/pdf_file/0004/47434/cif2_syntax_changes_jrh20101115.pdf.
A record of the extensive discussions of the DDLm working group is
available at http://www.iucr.org/resources/lists/ddlm-group, with
encoding-specific discussions taking place at
http://www.iucr.org/resources/lists/cif2-encoding

This CIF2 specification is now presented to COMCIFS for approval. I
urge all COMCIFS voting members to register their vote in a timely
fashion.

James Hester
COMCIFS Chair
