Abstract: We present our ongoing efforts into producing a completely new and modern implementation of an evolutionary code geared specifically toward stellar seismology and spectral/chemical evolution. A specificity of our code is that evolutionary computations are producing complete models of stars: down from the core up to, and including, the atmosphere. Sophisticated transport mechanisms are included: time-dependent convection, overshooting, semi-convection, thermohaline mixing, gravitational settling, simultaneous multi-element diffusion, thermal and turbulent diffusion, winds and accretion events. Radiative support of elements is currently under implementation. As an illustrative example, we present a white dwarf evolutionary track showing spectral type transformation.
