I am going to discuss new lattice results on the deconfinement and chiral aspects of the transition in QCD at non-zero temperature. I will report on calculations performed using the Improved Staggered Quark action on Nt=6, 8 and 12 lattices. I will show continuum extrapolation for several quantities that are discussed in connection with the transition at non-zero temperature as well as the determination of the chiral transition temperature in the continuum limit. Finally I will discuss new findings for the equation of state.
