We present recent developments in F-theory compactifications. We focus on advances in constructions of globally consistent F-theory compactifications with continuous and discrete gauge symmetries and emphasize new insights into global constraints on allowed matter representations. We highlight the first example of the three family Standard Model with Z2 matter parity and a subsequent systematic exploration of a landscape of related F-theory models.
