  Since the restart of the User Program after the Extremly Brilliant Source ugrade, BLISS is the new beamline control system at ESRF. 16 ESRF beamlines are controlling their experiments with BLISS. Full deployment is aimed on all beamlines by the end of 2023. BLISS is an all-in-one solution for beamline experiments, ranging from experiment control sequences and data acquisition to live visualization. BLISS is entirely written in Python and integrates seamlessly into Python tool chains. ESRF beamline staff and users alike can benefit from thousands of Python packages at their fingertips to improve data acquisition sequences. The BLISS team, which is part of the Beamline Control Unit within the Software Group, is in charge of the BLISS development. All primary objectives have been reached and nowadays the BLISS team is working on improving parts of the system ; most notably, focus is put on the interaction with other ESRF software like Daiquiri, our web framework for graphical applications, or online data analysis. This paper describes the actual state of BLISS and presents newest, most innovative features, that put BLISS at the heart of the ESRF data acquisition ecosystem.
