The Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 (WFPC2) is now a mature and largely well-characterized instrument. Information already available through the WFPC2 Instrument Handbook and the HST Data Handbook is fairly complete. In this update we provide additional information obtained from recent studies of the instrument, as well as calibration plans for the WFPC2 and a short note on present and planned imaging capabilities for HST. The major topics discussed in this document are:
