An overview is presented of developments on VELA (Versatile Electron Linear Accelerator), an RF photoinjector with two user stations (beam areas BA1, and BA2) at Daresbury Laboratory. Numerous machine development, commissioning, beam characterisation and user experiments have been completed in the past year. A new beamline and a dedicated multi-purpose chamber have been commissioned in BA1 and the first experiments performed. A number of measures have been taken to improve the stability of machine by mitigating problems with a phase drift, laser beam transport drift and a coherent beam oscillation. The 6D phase space of the electron beam has been characterised through quadrupole scans, transverse tomography and with a transverse deflecting cavity.
