The ICAT project provides a metadata catalogue and related components to support  Large Facility experimental data and aspires to link all aspects of the research chain from proposal through to publication and can also be used to provide an implementation of a data policy as has been done at a number of facilities using ICAT. Over the last couple of years, the existing components of ICAT have seen improvements in functionality and performance. TopCAT, a GUI to work with multiple ICATs,  has changed dramatically preserving only the original concept and new components have been added to provide flexible data delivery solutions and to make an ICAT  installation easy to manage. These changes have been made in consultation with the ICAT community to ensure that the components are highly decoupled and that as far as possible backwards compatibility is maintained as more sites move their ICAT installations into production.
