We present the xFitter project  which provides an open-source software framework for the determination of the proton's  parton distribution functions and for the interpretation of the physics analyses in the context of  Quantum Chromodynamics. The project has been used recently for a number of analyses performed by the LHC collaborations and theory community, which are summarised briefly. The xFitter developer’s team also performed several studies in the last year including estimation of the  impact of heavy quark matching scales, which are presented in more details.
