Just to confuse the issue: 

I got message this from Roger Wappling, editor of Physica Scripta,
on Aug 1 indicating that they were in the typesetting phase and
hoped to get the proceedings out in late 2004. Given the common
experience of poor communication with the people in charge, I can
certainly believe the 2005 estimate is more realistic.

I'm not at all sympathetic to their problem: their job is to
publish work in a timely manner, and they have not done this.  
Communication with the editors has been terrible.  I cannot
understand why this journal was used instead of Journal of
Synchrotron Radiation, but I think we should learn from this
experience and make sure it does not happen again.  Future
conference proceedings should be published in an IUCr journal.  
The IXS charter and by-laws should be changed to state this.

Well, that's my opinion anyway.
