Abstract: We present an overview of the performance of the latest generation of operating storage ring light sources. Emphasis is given to the comparison of design parameters to the achieved performances. Trends and innovations of established light sources to meet the increasing user's demand for high brilliance and different time structures will be presented. Report on upgrades and improvements will be given including orbit stability, top-up, feedback systems, lower-ID gap operation and a review of the activities for the generation of ultra-short radiation pulses in storage rings.
