This is the traditional NOBUGS update on the NeXus data format for neutron, muon and x-ray science. With steadily increasing adoption at facilities, NeXus is facing a number of challenges between developing the standard for new and future experiments while maintaining backward compatibility to data collected in the past. There are also different use cases that call for flexible and human readable storage and access on one hand and more rigid, machine parseable and automatable schemas on the other. At the moment the NeXus community is gathering and evaluating a number of technical solutions to address these issues. This includes work towards a versioning infrastructure for NeXus definitions, making definitions more modular or using object orientation to the same end. This presentation will provide an overview on the current status of those activities and will also highlight a few topics around the use of NeXus for high data rate crystallography, the NeXus-API and manual, we all as other business that may arise from the meeting of the NeXus committee in the week before NOBUGS. http://www.nexusformat.org
