  The Shanghai Soft X-ray Free-Electron Laser facility (SXFEL) is being developed in two steps, the test facility SXFEL-TF and the user facility SXFEL-UF. The SXFEL-TF, which will generate 8.8 nm FEL radiation with the two-stage cascaded HGHG-HGHG or EEHG-HGHG scheme, is under commissioning at the SSRF campus. In the meantime, The SXFEL-UF, with designed wavelength in the water window region, began construction in November 2016, based on upgrading the linac energy to 1.5 GeV and building a second undulator line and five experimental end-stations. Status and future plan of the SXFEL is presented here.
