JANA2 is multi-threaded event reconstruction framework being developed for Experimental Nuclear Physics. It is an LDRD funded project that will be the successor of the original JANA framework. JANA2 is a near complete rewrite emphasizing C++ language features that have only become available since the C++11 standard. Successful and less-than-successful strategies employed in JANA and how they are being addressed in JANA2 will be presented as well as new features suited to modern and future trends in data analysis.
