  We present recent developments in the accelerator design of CLARA (Compact Linear Accelerator for Research and Applications), the proposed UK FEL test facility at Daresbury Laboratory. These comprise a revised front-end to ensure integration with the existing VELA line, simulations of a magnetically compressed ultra-short mode and a post-FEL diagnostics section. We also present first considerations on the inclusion of final acceleration using X-band structures.
