Re: software publishing.

When CABIOS was being set up we were acutely aware of the software 'out there'
that could be useful to others. We set up the reader enquiry scheme to help,
and based on my own experiences that seems to work. We have also introduced
the Application Note that serves a short descrition of a new implementation
(new machine, for example) of an existing algorithm. Hardware is in a state
of flux, so there's always the need for a new implementation if we are to
avoid the 'lowest common denominator' software; this is what would make
software limited.

So CABIOS does try to help! Application Notes are turned around quickly, so
there is a good chance of acceptance and publication coinciding with
deposition on the EMBL server, for example.

CABIOS is also willing to respond to requests, so let's hear them.

By the way, I speak as an Editorial Board member now. The new Editor is
Charlie Bryce (address below) who will be working with Joe (Mojo)
Modelevsky to keep CABIOS as helpful to its readership as possible.
