This is the first issue of Volume 7 -- this year (2015) marks the seventh year of publication of the ISWI Newsletter. I would like to thank the ISWI community for its ongoing support of this newsletter, as well as for the ongoing support for the ISWI Website maintained by my colleague Mitko in Bulgaria. Among other things, his website hosts the archive for this newsletter -- there you can find all newsletter back-issues, going back to Issue 001 of Volume 1.
On this most auspicious day, the First Day of Year 2015, I ask for your continued support and I ask that you continue to send in material that will be of interest to the entire ISWI community. Knowledge is created through sharing and inter-action.
