Abstract: Diamond Light Source commenced routine operation in January 2007. Light to beamlines/users was provided for 3000 hours in 2007 increasing to 4000 hours during 2008. During shutdown periods insertion devices, front ends and beamlines have been and are being installed at a rate of approximately four per year. The evolution of the performance of the machine during this period is described and future developments are discussed.
