Abstract.  The development of the SOLPS suite of codes (B2-Eirene + others) in the last two years is covered. Important issues are: the determination of the anomalous radial transport directly from the experiment, as well as by coupling to turbulence codes; the extension of the drift & current model in B2, and new results for the L-H transition; the development of a new version of B2 including grid refinement; some modelling results on compression and in/out target asymmetry.
