The TANGO Controls Framework continues to improve. This paper will describe how TANGO kernel development has evolved since the last ICALEPCS conference. TANGO kernel projects source code repositories have been transferred from subversion on to git on Continuous integration with Travis CI and the GitHub pull request mechanism should foster external contributions. Thanks to the TANGO collaboration contract, parts of the kernel development and documentation have been sub-contracted to companies specialized in TANGO. The involvement of the TANGO community helped to define the roadmap which will be presented in this paper and also led to the introduction of Long Term Support versions. The paper will present how the kernel is evolving to support pluggable protocols - the main new feature of the next major version of TANGO.

  Sardana and Taurus form a python software suite for Supervision, Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) optimized for scientific installations. Sardana and Taurus are open source and deliver a substantial reduction in both time and cost associated to the design, development and support of control and data acquisition systems. The project was initially developed at ALBA and later evolved to an international collaboration driven by a community of users and developers from ALBA, DESY, MAXIV and Solaris as well as other institutes and private companies. The advantages of Sardana for its adoption by other institutes are: free and open source code, comprehensive workflow for enhancement proposals, a powerful environment for building and executing macros, optimized access to the hardware and a generic Graphical User Interface (Taurus) that can be customized for every application. Sardana and Taurus are currently based on the Tango Control System framework but also capable to inter-operate to some extend with other control systems like EPICS. The software suite scales from small laboratories to large scientific institutions, allowing users to use only some parts or employ it as a whole.

FRAPL07 The ESRF's Extremely Brilliant Source - a 4th Generation Light Source 2010

  After 20 years of operation, the ESRF has embarked upon an extremely challenging project - the Extremely Brilliant Source (ESRF - EBS) . The goal of this project is to construct a 4th generation light source storage ring inside the existing 844m long tunnel. The EBS will increase the brilliance and coherence by a factor of 100 with respect to the present ESRF storage ring. A major challenge is to keep the present ring operating 24x7 while designing and pre-constructing all the elements of the new ring. This is the first time a 4th generation light source will be constructing inside an existing tunnel. This paper concentrates on the control system aspects. The control system is 100% TANGO based. The paper will list the main challenges of the new storage ring like the Hot Swap Powersupply, the new timing system, how reliable operation was maintained while modernizing the injector control system and preparing the new storage ring control system, the new historical database, and how extensive use was made of software simulators achieve this.
