In this contribution I will present the latest developments concerning the APFEL++ program. APFEL++ is a C++ rewriting of the Fortran 77 evolution code APFEL, it is based on a completely new code design and guarantees a better performance along with an optimal memory management. This makes APFEL++ suitable for a wide range of tasks: from the solution of the DGLAP evolution equations to the computation of deep-inelastic-scattering (DIS) and single-inclusive-annihilation cross sections. Also more complex computations, like semi-inclusive DIS and Drell-Yan cross sections, are easily implementable/implemented in APFEL++. In this talk I will discuss some recent results including the use of APFEL++ to implement transverse-momentum resummation applied to Drell-Yan and semi-inclusive DIS.
