The last year has seen significant progress in demonstrating the feasibility of a high current, high brightness photoinjector as required for the Energy Recovery Linac driven X-ray source at Cornell University. Both low emittances (0.4 mm-mrad rms normalized for 100% of the beam at 20 pC per bunch and 0.15 mm-mrad rms core emittance with 70% of the beam, and twice these values at 80 pC per bunch) and high average currents with a good lifetime well in excess of 1000 Coulombs at 5 MeV, 20 mA have been demonstrated. If these beams can be accelerated to 5 GeV without diluting the phase space, it would already provide a beam brightness higher than any existing storage ring. Operational experience, results, and the outlook for the future will be presented.
