This paper presents details on some of the important new features in the newly released version of the x-ray tracing software package McXtrace. Although many developments have been made, this presentation is focused on the features that were required to meet the challenges posed for accurate simulation of the DanMAX beamline - a beamline currently under design at the MAX IV synchrotron. Among these may be mentioned: new source-models, new monochromator crystal models, multilayer capabilities, and the full beamline simulation frame itself.
