This issue presents three papers and three special contributions on software reuse, a paper on standardized (reference) designs for distributed systems applications, and two papers on advances in software systems for printing. The three special contributions introduce a new feature of the IBM Systems Journal, called Technical Forum. We are indebted to W. Tracz of the IBM Federal Systems Company in Owego, New York, for his solicitation and coordination of the reuse set, and to R. K. deBry of Pennant, the IBM Printing Systems Company, in Boulder, Colorado, for his involvement in and support of the papers on printing technology.
