I present a status report of the hadronic vacuum polarization effects for the muon g–2, to be considered as an update of . The update concerns recent new inclusive R measurements from KEDR in the energy range 1.84 to 3.72 GeV. For the leading order contributions I find based on e+e- data [incl. τ data], (NLO) and (NNLO). Collecting recent progress in the hadronic light-by-light scattering I adopt π0, η, η' [95 ± 12] + axial-vector [8 ± 3] + scalar [-6 ± 1] + π, K loops [-20 ± 5] + quark loops [22 ± 4] + tensor [1 ± 0] + NLO [3 ± 2] which yields . With these updates I find a 4.1 σ deviation. Recent lattice QCD results and future prospects to improve hadronic contributions are discussed.
