OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) is an open source, C++ based tool for charged particle tracking in large accelerator structures and beam lines including 3D space charge, particle matter interaction and FFAG capabilities. The careful parallel design makes it possible to tackle large and complex problems, in a reasonable time frame. The current code status and latest program improvements and upgrades are introduced. One of the provided flavors, OPAL-T, was, so-far, used for

One of the major upgrades is the possibility to place elements in 3D space, giving the user a better control in absolute element positioning. The old input format with relative positioning is still supported. We show results of the BERLinPro lattice and compare it with results obtained with elegant.
