Abstract: The 2dFdr fibre MOS reduction package originated with the original 2dF instrument (Lewis et al. 2002) and its original spectrograph in the mid 1990s. As the 2dF instrument has been upgraded with new spectrographs and features through its 20 years of life to address new science roles, so has 2dFdr. Originally designed to reduce spectra for the 2dF Galaxy redshift survey on what is now considered very slow hardware, it is now reducing spectra from the AAT's AAOmega Spectrograph to the dramatically higher quality required for surveys such as SAMI (Bryant et al. 2015) and OzDES (Yuan et al. 2015), as well as reducing data from KOALA and HERMES and the soon to be commissioned TAIPAN instrument. We examine some of the more significant recent improvements and the quality of the results from the current version.
