An overview over the features of version 7 of the code COSY IN-FINITY is given. Currently distributed to about 160 registered users, the code allows the computation and manipulation of maps of arbitrary order for arbitrary arrangements of fields. Besides the conventional analysis tools including various techniques for symplectic tracking, normal form methods, hardware and reconstructive aberration correction, and achromat design, several new features are presented. These include efficient

Furthermore, we give references regarding the practical use of the new remainder differential algebraic methods, which among other things allow fully rigorous estimates of stability times of nonlinear repetitive motion.
