The bright low-energy positron beam provided by the neutron induced positron source in Munich (NEPOMUC) at FRM II is used in a large variety of experiments in materials science, condensed matter and surface physics as well as in fundamental research, e.g., for the creation of a positron-electron pair plasma. Within this contribution, an overview of the current status and developments of the positron beam facility with its instrumentation is given. Plans for the installation of a buffer gas trap for the creation of high-density positron pulses as well ideas for increasing the performance of the remoderated positron bam are elucidated. The upgrades of the positron beam instruments (i) Coincident Doppler-Broadening Spectrometer (CDBS) using a scanning positron micro beam, (ii) instrument for the 2D measurement of the Angular Correlation of Annihilation Radiation (2D-ACAR), and (iii) the surface spectrometer are highlighted. Finally, the planned extension of the positron beam facility and the future operation of positron beam experiments in the experimental hall East are presented.
