    The design, construction, integration and commissioning of the current generation of highly automated; remotely operated beamlines holds many challenges. All the aspects of hardware and software integration must be of the highest specification and quality to achieve stable user operations with low levels of intervention from operations staff with high reliability. I will describe the many successes and few less successful aspects of the management and implementation of the two MX beamlines at the Australian Synchrotron from 2005 till 2009. I will then touch on advances in the newest generation of beamline diagnostics and detectors
