Dear COMCIFS members,

I'm very happy to advise you all that a paper describing the new CIF2
syntax (, together with a paper
describing a high-quality, freely-available CIF2 parsing library written in
C (, have been published in the
February edition of J. Appl. Cryst.  This formally brings to a close the
development phase of the CIF2 standard, and on behalf of all of us I thank
the many people over the years that have worked hard on making the new
syntax a reality.

Please note also that a forum for discussions related to CIF2 is now
available at

James Hester.
