Dear COMCIFS members,

I'm very happy to advise you all that a paper describing the new CIF2 syntax (http://dx.doi.org/10.1107/S1600576715021871), together with a paper describing a high-quality, freely-available CIF2 parsing library written in C (http://dx.doi.org/10.1107/S1600576715021883), 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 http://forums.iucr.org/viewforum.php?f=37

James Hester.
