Abstract Since 2021 the Tango Controls collaboration has improved and optimised its efforts in many areas. Not only have Special Interest Group meetings (SIGs) been introduced to speed up the adoption of new technologies or improvements, the kernel has switched to a fixed six-month release cycle for quicker adoption of stable kernel versions by the community. CI/CD provides now early feedback on test failures and compatibility issues. Major code refactoring allowed for a much more efficient use of developer resources. Relevant bug fixes, improvements and new features are now adopted at a much higher rate than ever before. The community participation has also noticeably improved. The kernel switched to C++14 and the logging system is undergoing a major refactoring. Among many new features and tools is jupyTango, Jupyter Notebooks on Tango Controls steroids. PyTango is now easy to install via binary wheels, old Python versions are no longer supported, the build-system is switching to CMake, and releases are now made much closer to stable cppTango releases.
