Abstract The integration of structured data and the PV Access network protocol into the EPICS toolkit has opened up many possibilities for added functionality and features, which more and more facilities are looking to leverage. At the same time however the core developers also have to cope with technical debt incurred in the race to deliver working software. This paper will describe the current status of EPICS 7, and some of the work done in the last two years following the reorganization of the code-base. It will cover some of the development group’s technical and process changes, and echo questions being asked about support for recent language standards that may affect support for older target platforms, and adoption of other internal standards for coding and documentation.
