  To reach the goals specified in the ESRF upgrade program [1], for the new experiments to be built, the storage ring needs to be modified. The optics must to be changed to allow up to seven meter long straight sections and canted undulator set-ups. Better beam stabilization and feedback systems are necessary for the nano-focus experiments planned. Also we are undergoing a renovation and modernization phase to increase the lifetime of the accelerator and its control system. This paper resumes the major upgrade projects, like the new BPM system, the fast orbit feedback or the ultra small vertical emittance, and their implications on the control system. Ongoing modernization projects such as the solid state radio frequency amplifier or the HOM damped cavities are described. Software upgrades of several sub-systems like vacuum and insertion devices, which are planned for this year or for the long shutdown period beginning of 2012 are covered as well. The final goal is to move to a Tango only control system.

  Tango is an object oriented control system toolkit based on CORBA initially developed at the ESRF. It is now also developed and used by Soleil, Elettra, Alba, Desy, MAX Lab, FRM II and some other labs. Tango concept is a full distributed control system. That means that several processes (called servers) are running on many different hosts. Each server manages one or several Tango classes. Each class could have one or several instances. This poster will show existing tools to configure, survey and manage a very large number of Tango components.
