As per the last edition, the newsletter's main intended audience is
that of crystallographic programmers; people who like to look under the
bonnet of the programs they are using; and those interested in
crystallographic programming. There are also general articles of
possible interest to those who use crystallographic software as a black
box, and/or interested in topics surrounding crystallographic computing.

The next intended issue is scheduled to appear around January 2004.
Submission of articles for this next edition are welcome.  Particularly
software announcements where examples of updated or new source code
and algorithms are elaborated.
