FairRoot is a software framework for detector simulation, reconstruction, and data analysis based on ROOT. It provides basic infrastructure services (e.g: I/O, geometry handling, visualization, etc…) which allow fast prototyping of detector simulation, reconstruction and analysis codes. Modular reconstruction and/or analysis is easily achieved by the usage of ROOT TTasks. Started as a framework for one experiment at the FAIR project, it proves to be suitable for more experiments. Meanwhile it is used by many GSI/FAIR experiments, as well as by the MPD experiment in Dubna and the EIC collaboration at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. The design of the framework with focus on some new features like the time-based simulation, the usage of graphics cards, or the database connectivity will be introduced.
