Dear Subscribers,

Last week was quite fruitful for ParalleMIC as you can see from the length of
the present newsletter. In addition, I found some new patents such as on the
Eclipse manipulator and the Quickstep milling machine. They will be posted
later this week -- I need to restructure the Patents section, since there are
now more than 20 sublists.

Yours sincerely,

Ilian Bonev
