	 Chirp!     A Monthly Review of GRASS   News and Tips

After numerous unfortunate delays, we can finally ship the first issue
of this new monthly periodical for GRASS users and developers. I wish
to thank those members of the GRASS community who expressed their
support verbally and pecuniarily early on: I hope you find that your
patience has been well worth it.

Each sixty-page (average) issue of Chirp! reviews the information from
the most recent month's GRASSHopper traffic, and generally from one
earlier month as well extracted from the accumulated backlog of mail
archives. Space permitting, each issue includes additional feature
articles covering a wide range of timely topics of particular interest
to GRASS users and developers.

Chirp! is designed expressly for those GRASS users and developers who
either have no access to electronic mail or who find it more
convenient to peruse a print publication than raw mail archives,
especially in searching for useful notes and tips that appeared in
past GRASSHopper mail.

Here are the columns and feature articles you'll find in the first
issue of Chirp!:
