The RooFit toolkit has become a standard tool to formulate probability densitity functions and likelihood function in HEP. In particular, the development of the 'workspace' concept to persist models has greatly advanced the ability to share and combined models, and is the foundation of the RooStats tools and the LHC Higgs discovery analysis. I will review the current state of RooFit, the workspace and the workspace factory and plans to improve their functionality and performance in the next year, with some particular attention to the new abilities that the cling interpreter in ROOT6 offers.
