Dear All,

I would like to clarify the position of MSI regarding X-PLOR/CNS/CNX and to 
clear up any misunderstandings that were reported in an email recently 
posted to this list. MSI is strongly committed to the development and 
enhancement of CNX.    As you may know, CNX is the result of the merger of 
the code basis of X-PLOR 98/98.1 from MSI and CNS from Yale.  MSI has 
continued to make regular releases of CNX with the first release CNX 2000 
in early 2000, followed by the recently release of CNX 2000.1 For more 
information about what was included in these releases please see the 
following web page: http://www.msi.com/life/products/cnx/

We have developed these releases both through internal development efforts 
and external collaborations. In addition, we are currently developing CNX 
2001 which will include new functionality.  We expect CNX 2001 to be 
released in Fall 2001.  CNX will extend further the functionality of CNS 
and we will try to follow closely needs of crystallographic and NMR 
community to develop new functionality in CNX according to these needs.

On MSI's website you can download a one-month trial of the current release 
CNX 2000.1:  http://www.msi.com/download/cnx/cnx_download.html (Academic 
users can obtain this downloadable version for a nominal fee).

MSI remains committed to developing and supporting CNX. If you have any 
questions/concerns related to CNX, please feel free to contact me at 
cnx at msi.com
