  Commissioning of the world's first compact X-ray FEL facility named SPring-8 Angstrom Compact free electron LAser (SACLA) began in the Spring of 2011 and soon demonstrated lasing at a wavelength of 0.12nm. In the autumn of 2011 laser intensity reached sub mJ/pulse in the wavelengths ranging from 0.1 to 0.3 nm. The laser power saturation was also achieved at around or longer than 0.1 nm. The official user operation will start from March 2012. This presentation will cover innovative design aspects of the SACLA construction project, events leading to key milestones in the commissioning process, a review of the present status and perspectives on future upgrades.
