  A multi-Optical Transition Radiation (mOTR) system made of four stations is being used routinely since September 2011 for transverse beam size measurement and emittance reconstruction in the extraction line of ATF2, providing diagnostic support during the ATF2 tuning operation. Furthermore it is also an excellent tool for fast transverse coupling correction. Due to the compactness of the current design the system has an influence in the increase of the transverse emittance due to wakefield effects when a simultaneous measurement is made. To avoid this effect a new target holder and a new optics has been designed and implemented. In this paper we describe the present status of the ATF2 mOTR system, showing recent performance results, and hardware design improvements.
