Abstract: Starting with the Linac 2005 the commissioning of the Diamond Light Source accelerators and photon beamlines, together with their related control systems, progressed to an aggressive programme such that as of early 2007 the facility was available for first users with a suite of beamlines and experiment stations. the implementation and commissioning of the control system to meet the overalll project objectives is presented. the current status of the control sstem and including ongoing developments for electron beam orbit stability, and future photon beamline requirements are also described.
