We review many developments in the design of the Beam Delivery System for the Next Linear Colllider. The collimation system has been redesigned to reduce nonlinearities and ease tolerances, and the IP Switch line has been adjusted to permit a 300 meter longitudinal separation between the two detectors. Magnet designs have been changed to reduce the number of distinct magnet classes, produce a smoother vacuum chamber, and improve pumping. A revised set of interaction-region quadrupoles achieves

Studies have begun on the set of feedbacks required to maintain the stability of the system and the changes in tolerances thus implied.
