Recent progress and future plan of the JENDL project are summarized. Two special purpose files were released recently. One is Photo-nuclear Data File 2016 (JENDL/PD-2016) which contains the data of photo-nuclear reaction cross sections covering a wide area of the nuclear chart. The other one is the JENDL Activation Cross Section File for Nuclear Decommissioning 2017 (JENDL/AD-2017) which provides production cross sections of radioactive nuclei by neutrons. A special purpose file JENDL/ImPACT-2018 dedicated to transmutation of long-lived fission products will be released in 2019. Regarding the general-purpose file, we are preparing to release the next version, which would be made available by 2022 as JENDL-5. Evaluation efforts on nuclides across wide range of nuclei form light to heavy have being made. The first test version JENDL-5α1 was created in 2018. The evaluated data will be updated on the basis of benchmark tests on reactor criticalities and neutron shieldings.
