We report on developments at the Gif-sur-Yvette AMS facility since 1990. On the technical side these include: (i) installation of a new dual port injection line based on a rotating electrostatic analyzer designed and constructed by IsoTrace laboratory; (ii) new estimates of 10Be efficiency and background; (iii) the failure of one of the Delrin compression rods on the column, resulting in the rupture of the low energy accelerator tube; (iv) plans (unfortunately not yet fulfilled) to add a second high energy line to permit analysis of ions heavier than mass 30. We also give a brief resumé of the research programs currently being carried out using 10Be and 26Al.
